The format provided is a vector PDF document. To open it, open up Inkscape and then click and drag the PDF document onto your canvas to import it. Once imported, ungroup everything by pressing control + shift + g, and then the designs should be available for use.
I’m releasing these designs into the public domain so feel free to use them however you’d like, including personal and commercial use. No attribution necessary. All I ask is that you please do not re-upload the vector files for these designs anywhere else, or list them for sale on a stock photo site or any other marketplace.
