I have always enjoyed and admired, how much simple, smart typography can tell and inspire. Simple words can sometimes tell more than amazing digital time-consuming artworks. Basically this wallpaper roundup will enjoy everybody, who likes smart, mostly minimalistic and clean typography. As always I tried to find really high quality wallpapers so almost everybody can use these. One more thing – just through research I found out surprisingly, how rare are really good typography wallpapers, which I would like to include here. Yet technically simple to create, but not easy to create in good, minimalistic and harmonic way.Read More
Some time ago I created article – 52 Really High Quality Free Fonts For Modern And Cool Design, which turned out to be very popular.

If you are programmer or actually if you at least have some basic coding skills, you’ll find this article useful. For example just look at this page source – without highlighting that whole code is just a bunch of plain black text and it is really hard to find specific things if everything looks the same. Thankfully there are many highlighting scripts available, for example Notepad++ also supports and highlights different code snippets. These code syntax highlighters actually are doing mainly the same thing, but with more options, big coding language support, better integration – really in our days you just need to choose one – there are too many tools available anyway.Read More

Surprisingly I did not find many articles featuring color gradient sites, color generators and lastly beautiful collections of gradients. There are big variety of many color generators, color palettes and things like that, but not many really focus on Photoshop gradients. I don’t know that’s good thing or bad, but I really love gradients, many beautiful websites and logos are created just by using color variations in subtle, very creative way.Read More
Patterns actually can be found almost everywhere – in print design, web design, graphic design etc. For example if you use pattern in web design, just set CSS repeat-x-y and you’ll get beautiful background,but image will be very small and page load time will be much faster. There are very big variety how you can use and implement patterns, but the fact is – free resources – like patterns, brushes, shapes are big time savers. Of course it’s better to create your own stuff, but sometimes you receive project with fast deadline and you need everything to do fast and this is one of the solutions.
This list just features 22 resource sites and several very well written articles with premade pattern collections, it was very interesting for me to write this article, I am hoping it will be interesting reading and useful resource for bookmarking.Read More
