Radar: Free April 2012 Calendar Wallpaper

Thumbnail April 2012 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 April 2012 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled Radar. After using a lot of lines and angles in previous wallpapers I felt it was time to go back to my loved circle for this design. The design is split into 4, representing the 4th month as well as the four seasons. The lime colour was a conscious choice to relate to Spring. Everything else is pretty much random and should be classified under ‘happy accidents’. I hope you enjoy it! + Continue Reading

FYI Monday: Beautiful Typography by Marko Purac

FYI Monday Typography Inspiration by Marko Purac

This post is part of the For Your Inspiration Monday series showcasing the most inspiring designs out there. Each week a new artist or design style will be presented in order to get your creative juices flowing for the upcoming week. I hope you enjoy the series.

Marko Purac is a graphic designer & illustrator from Novi Sad. Serbia. I first came across Marko’s designs while searching for typographic inspiration online. The one thing that drew me in immediately is that Marko often uses no colour at all. There’s something special about typographic designs that solely rely on shapes and lines. It always reminds me of vintage skateboard graphics and t-shirt designs. For more inspiration make sure to visit Marko’s Flickr page. + Continue Reading

Jordan Gray is designer, illustrator and art director from Kansas City. I first stumbled across Jordan’s work when I saw one of his gig posters. So I checked him out and loved all of his other projects too. Some of the designs are super busy with lots of colours, others are very minimal using a limited colour palette. It’s impressive to see that one person can pull off both so well while still maintaining a certain personal style. Check out some of Jordan’s work below.

M: Free March 2012 Calendar Wallpaper

Free March 2012 Desktop Wallpaper Thumbnail by Fudgegraphics

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 2012 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled M. The geometric pattern was created using only the the letter M, duplicated and blended together to create the intricate composition of triangles. I didn’t want it to be too obvious though which is why I introduced a lot of white space into design. The colour green was chosen for accents, after all this is a spring wallpaper and it shouldn’t be too dark. Enjoy! + Continue Reading
