Happy Holidays 2011

Happy Holidays 2011 Fudgegraphics Thumb

Time has flown quicker than ever and I can’t believe that it’s already the end of 2011. It’s been a great year, both personally and professionally, and I’ve got plenty of new things lined up for the future already. There will be more inspirational posts, more freebies and a little surprise as well. I can’t wait to reveal all in the new year.

Until then, I want to take this opportunity to wish you all happy holidays. I hope that 2011 was great on you too and that 2012 will be even bigger and better. Thanks for your continuous support. Fudgegraphics wouldn’t be the same without you! + Continue Reading

What’s Your Favourite Colour? [2011 Edition]

Favourite Colour 2011 Thumb

When it comes to design, colour is one of the most important tools in our arsenal. Choosing the right colour sets the mood for the design and gives a great layout that final touch. Over the last 12 months I’ve asked 35 of my favourite designers and bloggers one simple question: What’s your favourite colour? Although, as everyone will tell you, there’s nothing simple about the question. It’s really hard to find that single colour to identify with. Chances are that some of these answers are already out of date, they do however reflect the state of mind of the interviewee at the time of sending me their answer.

Rather than only having a list of all the favourite colours I’ve also made a nice infographic further analysing all of the the different answers. Let us know who your colour buddy is! + Continue Reading

Flake: Free December 2011 Calendar Wallpaper

Thumbnail December 2011 Desktop Wallpaper

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 desktop background each month should help getting your creative juices flowing. The Decmeber 2011 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled Flake. I suppose the inspiration behind this one isn’t hard to crack. It’s all about winter, snow & Christmas at the moment so it made sense to come up with a related design. Truth be told, the plan was to create a minimal Christmas tree, but it turned out that you can make an even nicer snowflake by copying, rotating and scaling the same tree over and over again. As a special treat this festive season there’s 2 versions of the iPad & iPhone wallpapers available, one for the lock screen, one for the home screen. If you like it then please help spread the word. + Continue Reading
