FYI Monday Brunofsky True Widow Gig Poster

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.

Bruno Guerreiro aka Brunofsky is an illustrator / graphic designer based in Philadelphia, PA. That’s about as much info as I could find. Rather than focus on the who let’s take a look at the what. Bruno designs for bands, mostly gig / tour posters, but he’s been known to do the occasional t-shirt design and album cover illustration too. His style always reminds me of old-school B-Horror-Movies which suits gig poster illustrations perfectly. For more inspiration visit brunofsky.prosite.com + Continue Reading

Isometry: Free May 2012 Calendar Wallpaper

Thumbnail May 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 May 2012 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled Isometry. The design is very minimal as I wanted to concentrate purely on the type this time round. It’s a custom font I created using only isometric triangles. While I’ve finished the uppercase letters I’m currently working on numbers and possibly lowercase letters too. Depending on your feedback I’ll release it as a proper font. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it as much as I do! + Continue Reading

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
