Steady Still: Free March 09 Wallpaper

March 2009 Thumbnail

This post is part of the free calendar wallpaper series. Each month I create a new wallpaper featuring the current calendar. Looking at the same image over and over again is not very stimulating. Hence having a new background each month should help getting your creative juices flowing. March 09 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled “Steady Still”. There’s no real meaning behind it. I just liked the sounding of the words. + Continue Reading

What’s Your Favourite Colour?

Favourite Colour Group Interview Thumbnail

Colours tell a lot about someone’s personality. So in an effort to learn a bit more about my favourite designers and bloggers I started a 1-question mass interview to ask them what their favourite colour is. Although the colours they chose are very different these 40 creative minds have one thing in common. They are at the top of their game and I respect them deeply for their contributions to the design community. So please visit their websites/blogs and discover outstanding articles, free high quality resources and gorgeous designs.
As a bonus I made an A2 poster containing all the favourite colours with the respective names for you to download as pdf for free. All you need to do is take it to your local print shop or simply use your inkjet at home to print it. + Continue Reading

News: Fubiz Redesign

Fubiz_Logo
Fubiz.net was one of the first blogs I subscribed to when I got into the designer blogging world. It is run by Romain and offers the latest inspirational designs and videos. The content is available in French and English. And did I see they are an infinite source of inspiration? Usually I would not write about a site redesign, unless it is this site of course, but this time I make an exception. First of all the new look is gorgeous. Secondly the way the new design is presented is incredible. Instead of showing simple screenshots of the new vs. old site they made a video. This is an original and creative concept that I had to share it with you. So here goes:
