Fudgegraphics got a new look

Over the last months I’ve been busy working on the redesign of fudgegraphics and today it is finally live. As many of you know personal designs are the hardest to do because we are never truly happy and always want to make it look that more special. Hence it takes longer than expected.

So what’s new then?

The logo hasn’t changed much, after all it is the most important branding tool and I want people to still recognize the site. Same goes for the overall colour scheme, although I switched to brown tones to compliment the blue.

Anniversary Series: Fudgegraphics Turns One

anniversary-series
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.

Happy Birthday!
