On the first Wednesday of every month, I’m going to pull together some inspirations and resources I have around and make some sweet desktop wallpapers. It’s usually just going to be one or two at a time. They will be all over the place, from type related to whatever cool pattern I might be digging at the moment. As always, let me know what you like or if there is something you want to see.
Wild West Bodoni
For this month’s wallpapers I went to the well of some old projects I did back in college. The first is a background I built for a poster. I designed, printed, and made a full deck of cards with the letters of a Bodoni Poster version on one side. Then I sat down and spread them out over the table, trying different arrangements, and shooting some photos of the different setups. This one I liked the best; now here it is in a couple of different wallpaper sizes.
That GD Graphic Design
This is another idea from my college days. I developed this pattern for my self-identity as a graphic designer. Hence the GD. Plus my name is Griffin, so Griffin Design also GD. This one is extremely busy so its definitely not for the person who carries a ton of icons on their desktop. Maybe I’ll expand on the idea some more and try some different letters or words and see what else I can do with the style.
