Clouds PS Brush Set 2 Thumbnail

This latest freebies set contains 17 High Resolution Clouds Photoshop Brushes. The brushes are between 2300px to 2500px large which makes them ideal for both print and web projects. These brushes were sitting on my computer for a while now and I always forgot to release them. They can be used in a variety of ways such as for adding cosmic and nebulae elements to your designs. Why not alter them using the warp and smudge tools in Photoshop. Alternatively you could create simple backgrounds with these for your design. Feel free to share your experiments with us! As always these hi-res Photoshop brushes are free for commercial and personal use. + Continue Reading

Source: Free April 2011 Calendar Wallpaper

April 2011 Calendar Wallpaper 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 desktop background each month should help getting your creative juices flowing. The April 2011 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled “Source”. The triangular shapes were created in Illustrator, while the circles were made in Photoshop CS5 using the new 3D options. I tried to select a colour palette which I hadn’t used before and think that it works well with the overall composition. Please share it if you like it. + Continue Reading

III: Free March 2011 Calendar 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 March 2011 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled “III”. This is a play on March being the third month of the year. After last month’s monotone wallpaper it’s time to add colour to design again. As always the calendar wallpaper is heavily influenced by geometric shapes combined with grunge textures. I hope you like it. + Continue Reading

February 2011 Thumb

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 February 2011 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled “MonoRoute”. For once I tried to get rid of most the symmetries in the design as well as toning down all the colours. The design has been done entirely in Photoshop using only shapes and some textures for a more organic feel. I hope you like it. + Continue Reading

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 January 2011 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled “Sync”. The design is very minimal and geometric. On the one hand I really like the design, on the other hand I was under a lot of time constraints to finish this one. I hope you still enjoy it. + Continue Reading

Free Hi-Res PS Brushes: Rolled Paint Set 1

It’s been a while since I last published high resolution PS brushes. Finally I’ve found time over the weekend to create some more and I’m very happy to release this new set containing 10 Free High Resolution “Rolled Paint” Photoshop Brushes. The brushes are between 2400px to 2500px large which makes them ideal for both print and web projects. The small previews don’t do them justice, you have to download to see the fine detail. It was great fun getting messy with water colours and a rubber paint roll. The brushes can be used to quickly grunge up any design giving it a more organic feel or to create distressed borders. Alternatively you can vectorize them and use as a scalable mask. The possibilities are endless and I hope you can put them to good use. As always these hi-res photoshop brushes are free for commercial and personal use. I will be releasing the source textures shortly as well as part 2 of the set. Enjoy! + Continue Reading
