It’s been ages since I last designed a free wallpaper to share with you all. Woops!! This summer proved to be insanely busy, followed by a busy fall season for work. Earlier this week, I took about an hour to develop this pattern and simply had fun playing with colors + shapes. Sometimes that’s the best medicine for a gloomy morning or slow start. ;) Feel free to download the HQ file below and crop + use wherever you’d like as it should fit any device nicely! Enjoy friends.
When it comes to desktop backgrounds, I tend to fancy wallpaper on the simple ( go figure ) side of things. And it just occurred to me that I hadn’t been doing much of that lately in this column, so I went back to the basics and used a phrase I’ve been repeating in my head a LOT. I’ve written about the sentiment of being present in the past, but it’s truthfully something that I have to work hard at each and everyday. It’s just how I’m wired. So when I find myself wandering into future land or worrying about things I don’t need to be, I simply say “this is where you are” or “this is who you are” to remind myself to be just here, right now. This desktop is already on my computer as a visual reminder, which certainly helps while at work! Plus, this design is borrowed from a rejected client comp that I enjoyed enough to recycle in a meaningful way. You can download in various sizes below! I hope it can help some of you, too.
Today’s free wallpaper is a little bit different than normal, simply because I’m only offering it in mobile format. I wanted to transform this quote I worked on a few weeks back and share it with you all, but quickly realized that the composition was best suited as a vertical only. SO, that means our trusty ipads and iphones are the winners this time around! I hope you understand. ;) The phrase, though, is something that I genuinely identify with ( and hope other do too ) as I venture off into a handful of new opportunities. Sometimes the right direction truly does feel disorienting, but in a new + exciting way. Feel free to download the wallpaper below. It’s LARGE so that it stays crisp on retina display. Enjoy!
