Yes I know! I just can’t help it. I wasn’t happy with the design and decided to give it a new look. Hopefully this design is more user-friendly. Please let me know if there are any bugs.
Greig Anderson is a 26 year old graphic designer from Glasgow, Scotland. He showcases all his work at effektivedesign.co.uk. You’ve probably seen some of his great graphics already but I just had to feature him on fudgegraphics. I immediately fell in love with the designs when I first saw his cassette button sets. His imagination is sheer amazing. As always I only showcase some of the best works. Usually there are pieces in one’s portfolio that I don’t like that much, but when it comes to Greig Anderson there isn’t a single piece that isn’t fantastic! I even enjoyed reading his biography. It’s witty and informative. I predict a great future for this fairly young graphic designer.
A couple weeks back I featured the work of Jonathan Haggard who works under the alias of “skryingbreath”. He dropped me a mail to inform me of his newly launched portfolio at jonathanhaggard.com. It is definitely worth a look.
I’ve had the portfolio of Californian designer Mike Orduna bookmarked for some time now. Today I finally found some sparetime to really look into it and make a selection of his best works. Mike is better known under the alias of FATOE and his style could be described as being messy, vibrant and colourful. I’ll let you decide for yourself how you would like to characterize is. His portfolio is really extensive and his client list includes quite big names. Apart from finding his location (LA) and age (32) there wasn’t much information on him.

I don’t make a secret out of it: I am addicted to tea and coffee. So what better way to prove my love for these delicious brews than showcasing some of the best mug designs. Some of these are clever, some funny and others just plain gorgeous. When I started researching extraordinary mugs I didn’t realise that there were so many unique designs out there. These are the ones I found and like for one of the above mentioned reasons. In case you’re wondering, I drink my tea the British way.
MyCuppa comes in two versions: for tea and coffee. Whoever is on brewing duty, you’ll always get your drink just the way you like it. Buy at SuckUK.
The Messenger Mug lets you write and your mug and erease it later. Leave a note for your special one or use it as a post-it. Either way you can buy it from Heal’s.
It’s not July just yet but I’ve still finished the calendar wallpaper for July 2008. This is partly due to the fact that I will be moving on Thursday and don’t know how much time it will take to get settled in. As always the wallpaper comes in 2 versions: with and without the calendar. This way, if you like it, you can still use it after the month has passed. You even have the choice between a bright and dark version.
There are 2 different resolutions available: 1920×1200, which is suitable for 1440×900, and 1600×1200. I hope these will suit your needs. Feel free to drop a comment if you need it in a different aspect ratio and I’ll do my best to provide it to you.
I often go into large music stores to see what new music has emerged. Although online stores might be more convenient I enjoy flicking through CDs and vynils. Every now and then a particularly appealing album cover draws my attention. I might know the band and like their music, or not. Anyways, yesterday was such a day where i spent about an hour browsing through album covers seeking that eye-catching artwork. I got lucky and found a few real gems which I want to share with you. Unfortunately it wasn’t easy to find good quality pictures of the artworks. So please forgive me for some pixelated pictures.
Good news first. I passed all of this year’s exams and will start my MSci Physics in September at UCL. Until then I’ve got all the time to invest myself into the world of fudgegraphics. Also, I bought the latest issue of Advanced Photoshop Magazine this afternoon and while flicking through it I discovered this:
So Advanced Photoshop have compiled a list of the best freebie-websites out there including MyPhotoshopBrushes. My Tea Stains brush set (2nd in the first row) was lucky enough to have made it into the screencap. I’m really excited about this indirect advertising. Also I discovered that my brushes got rated an excellent 5.7/6. Whoop Whoop.
