First of all let me apologize to all of you for the site being down the last couple days. In order to get the site back on track and running smoothly again I switch to Media Temple as my host. Please let me know of any bugs/issues you encounter by leaving a comment or using the contact form.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
A little over a year ago fudgegraphics was born. In order to celebrate this special birthday I will start the Anniversary Series. During the next couple weeks you can expect different roundup posts of all the different freebies available on fudgegraphics, the master collection of all featured artists and I will give you an insight into the journey which has been this blog. Another article will concentrate on the future of fudgegraphics. At the end there will be a massive giveaway. I am still looking for sponsors and I would love to have you on board. So please get in touch if you’re interested.
Due to exams I cannot give a definite schedule of all the different posts. Rest assured though that I will do my best to publish the articles as soon as possible. I recommend you subscribe to my RSS feed. This way you won’t miss anything.
Last but not least I want to say thank you. Thank you to all of my regular and new readers, thanks for leaving comments and posting your designs in the fudgegraphics Flickr group. Thank you to my sponsors! And a huge thank you goes out to the whole design community which inspires and supports me.
In an attempt to get more subscribers I’m trying to do it the in-your-face way with a huge RSS button. For those who are already subscribed to fudgegraphics: well done! For those who haven’t signed up yet let me tell you why you should do so:
- It’s completely free
- You will never miss a post or freebie again
- You get full feeds on fudgegraphics not just excerpts
- Read the updates in your favourite feed reader or get them via e-mail
- It saves you time
If you’re new to RSS feeds don’t fear it’s really easy to set up. Either download one of many desktop based readers such as NetNewsWire or open a Google Reader Account which you can access anytime and anywhere. Alternatively you can subscribe for e-mail updates.
Make sure to visit Colorburned’s 127 RSS Feeds that all designers should subscribe to.
The nice folks from Go Media just released the Vector Set 14. As always the vectors are top notch and this set includes:
- Ornate Patterns

The best part is that they are offering the readers of fudgegraphics a 10% discount for a limited time (offer ends on 22nd March 09). All you have to do is enter the promotional code fudgegraphics at checkout. Please note that this code is only valid on Vector Set 14.
Jonathan Haggard, aka skryingbreath, just redesigned and updated his portfolio. He was one of the first featured artist here on fudgegraphics and I just can’t get enough of his retro graphics. Please visit jonathanggard.com to see all his latest designs and his gorgeously minimalistic website.
The amazingly talented guys from GoMedia are working on their 14th Vector Pack. The Hand Drawn Wings Set has been released on its own and I got an exclusive preview of it. Let me tell you this: it is gorgeous. The level of detail is incredibely rich. These wings are perfect for t-shirt graphics and any designs for print.
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:
