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 April 2013 Calendar Wallpaper goes by the name of Last Exit. This is a reference to the Pearl Jam song with the same title. In terms of design the wallpaper combines my favourite elements: type, geometric shapes and subtle textures. After the initial sketch I build all the shapes in Illustrator. Once they were exported as individual smart objects into Photoshop all I had to do was to add the textures and adjust the colours. As always, the calendar comes in the most common resolutions for all of your iGadgets.
