Guidelines on how to tag vectors

Important information

For tagging your vectors you can do it by two ways:

  • Uploading a .csv file with the information of all your files
  • Tagging your vectors directly from your contributor panel (Files waiting to tag)

In order to upload the CSV with tags and titles, please read the guide for creating a well formed .csv file.

 

 How to tag vectors

Before going into the tagging guidelines, we should point out the most common types of designs so we can add the appropriate basic tags.  

The most common designs are: background, banner, business card, flyer, infographic, stationery and wedding.

 

BACKGROUND BANNER

BUSINESS CARD

BROCHURE

 

 

1.  BACKGROUND TAGS

There are different types of background: abstract, polygonal, themed (Labor Day, International  Peace Day, Friendship Day...) and patterned. As a general rule, all backgrounds have three basic tags: background, backdrop and wallpaper. If the background has a specific theme, then we’ll use the corresponding tags for that theme.

 

1.1. ABSTRACT AND POLYGONAL BACKGROUNDS 

ABSTRACT POLYGONAL

 

Abstract and Polygonal backgrounds usually have the following tags depending on the design:

 

abstract, polygonal, poly, polygon, polygons, low poly, modern, geometric, geometrical, geometric shapes, abstract shapes, shapes.

 

The color can be specified if a background is just one color. If, on the other hand, it consists of various colors, we can use the tag colorful.

 

1.2. THEMED BACKGROUNDS

Themed backgrounds (Labor Day, International Peace Day, Friendship Day, Ramadan...) should contain the previously mentioned basic tags and the specific tags for the theme in question.

For example:

We can also refer to the style of the design with the tags vintage and retro.

 

1.3. PATTERNED

To tag a pattern, we first need to identify it as such. This should be a clear and coherent repetition of images in the design. 

Once identified, we can add the basic tags for a patterned background, as well as the ones that refer to the specific pattern or design itself.
