New promotional wallpaper!
« on: April 19, 2010, 06:02:33 am »
Hey,

It's been a while since our last blog post, not to mention since we last released a new promotional graphic.
I've been playing around in Photoshop for some time, experimenting with different ideas and techniques, and today I'd like to show to you one of the resulting wallpapers.
This is a typography style wallpaper with some grungy textures. For the SimpleDesk checkmark, I copied random parts of SimpleDesk's core code.

Here's the result. As I said, this is just one of the many ideas I've been cracking on behind the scenes. Expect more cool stuff soon!

There's no real full quality PSD available since the logo is created in Fireworks. There's just one where you can remove the drop shadow and move the three parts around. Fireworks could apparently not save it with any more detail :(

Can probably be done. I'll find B and see what he says (I didn't create it ;))
