Wallpaper Wednesday – No. 16

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.

Typography Squares

This month’s wallpaper is inspired by a project I remember doing my first year in college. You made a composition by cropping letters in squares and seeing how far you could push a letter before it just became unrecognizable shapes. We ended up making around ten squares for each letter and then sat there shuffling them around through endless combinations. It was a great introduction to legibility and attention to positive vs. negative space. I kept the background simple with just a little noise to let the squares and letters do the real work this month.
