MSH: Free January 2012 Calendar Wallpaper

Thumbnail January 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 January Calendar Wallpaper is entitled Make Shit Happen (MSH). I’m not one to make new year’s resolutions often, but this time round I made one: Do more self-initiated projects. This wallpaper should be a reminder, so at least this month I won’t forget. While this design might not be suitable for office use I still hope that you enjoy it and take the message to heart: Don’t just come up with ideas, turn them into reality. Whatever you do, make sure you have fun! + Continue Reading

What’s Your Favourite Colour? [2011 Edition]

Favourite Colour 2011 Thumb

When it comes to design, colour is one of the most important tools in our arsenal. Choosing the right colour sets the mood for the design and gives a great layout that final touch. Over the last 12 months I’ve asked 35 of my favourite designers and bloggers one simple question: What’s your favourite colour? Although, as everyone will tell you, there’s nothing simple about the question. It’s really hard to find that single colour to identify with. Chances are that some of these answers are already out of date, they do however reflect the state of mind of the interviewee at the time of sending me their answer.

Rather than only having a list of all the favourite colours I’ve also made a nice infographic further analysing all of the the different answers. Let us know who your colour buddy is! + Continue Reading
