Waiting for inspiration to strike, I have been cleaning-up my hard drive. Trawling through my C4D project files I kept coming across signs, insignia and logos I had made. I decided to pull them together into a family of Photoshop templates so that I stopped reinventing the wheel each time I needed a sign or logo and could work faster.
The Warning signs were designed to broadly fit into the same universe as my Moon/Silent Running-inspired signs.

A word about fonts
I have adjusted these templates so that the text layers use Arial Black, as both Windows and Mac machines should have this font as standard. The signs look more effective with any of the following fonts available from dafont www.dafont.com/fr/theme.php?ca…
Groups & Layers
To minimise the file sizes, wherever possible I have removed most of the rasterised layers and left the original PS Shape layer - this also allows you to easily change the colours. However, occasionally you will find the original shape layer missing - this is where I forgot to duplicate the Shape layer before rasterising or merging the layer.
Warning Oval Sign Base Shapes

Masks (alpha masks for clean and damaged)
The PS Brushes used to create the Dirt and Scratches layers include, but are not limited to:
Scratches by Katrina Rempel
Grunge Notion by Blazter
GrungeBrushes3 by KeReN-R
For the Biohazard sign I used Hazard Brushes 1 by AscendedArts
Have a ball- do whatever you want with it!
No restrictions beyond checking those of the font you use.
Whatever you do with the template, I would love to see it - I had loads of fun making images with it and I hope you do to!
