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.
Fatboy Type Love
If you haven’t heard of the Wood Type Revival, stop reading now and go check it out… don’t worry this post will still be here when you get back. They released an initial free version of Fatboy as part of their Kickstarter campaign which I’ve had sitting around for awhile and wanted to do something with it. Once I saw these vintage paper textures from Bittbox, things just rolled together real fast. I topped it all off by setting SpareType in Old Press – a font that will be part of this month’s Headline Heads Up.
