When I was designing the Rhino: June 08 Wallpaper I was looking for Origami vectors and discovered this great site.
By pure accident I found out how to quickly delete a Photoshop brush from the preset list. This comes in very handy when you’re trying to save a custom brush set and don’t want any superfluous brushes to be in your .abr file. There’s a tedious way, which means right-clicking on each brush and selecting delete. There’s the obvious one by clicking the thrash icon in the brush palette. Finally there’s a hidden, much simpler, quicker way:
It’s time for some free high resolution Photoshop brushes again. This time I made two sets with a total of 51 watercolour brushes. Resolutions are between 1480 px to 2500 px. I followed BittBox’s tutorial and hopefully you like the result. Feel free to use them as you wish. You need my permission if you want to distribute them. I’m looking forward to seeing your designs.
Kinetic Typography is the method by which you visualize a speech, conversation or lyrics only by means of animated text. I’ve put together a list of 11 typographic videos about cult movies. Not only are these animations very interesting but also they offer a great source of inspiration for static typographic design. If that’s not enough you could always try to determine what fonts were used.
I’ve just finished the new calendar series wallpaper for June 08 and I couldn’t wait to show it to you. It comes in 3 different resolution and you have the option to download a non-calendar version of each. This month I submitted my design to Smashing Magazine which features each month the best calendar wallpaper. Let’s hope they like it.
People have been waiting for this for quite some time and Scott Hansen was teasing us real good. Well it wasn’t his fault as he wasn’t allowed to reaveal the design until it was available in Obama’s campaign shop. Now that the wait is over I know that it was well worth it. It is amazing how Iso50 manages to put so much inspiration into one single design. Now all I’m hoping for is a couple of close-up scans to see all the details.
If your lucky enough to live in California then you’re in for a treat. An artist (if you know his name please tell me) has transformed all his walls into pieces of art over a time of more than 2 years. Now that he sold the house he has to paint over everything. Before destroying everything though he offers us the chance to see his artwork one last time. I really wish I could be there…
Incidentally a lot of bold, block type was used.
