Just As Beautiful: See Ya, Wouldn’t Wanna Bezier


Just As Beautiful, a magazine for fat homeschooled differently large people who think they are as good as us normal people launches with a promise not to airbrush its models. So logically they don't have anyone good at Photoshop on staff. So the island in the cover's cutout is a win. Wait, what?

Low25: Free October 2010 Calendar 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 October 2010 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled “Low25″. It plays a lot with symmetries and uses a few different stock photos of mountains. The blue colour palette was chosen to remind us the coming colder months. It’s a bit different from my usual designs so I hope you like the minimal approach. Feel free to express your thoughts in the comment section. Thanks.
