Smashing Magazine is a website aimed squarely at graphic and web-site designers but there’s some great resources there for all geeks.
First up, is a series of absolutely gorgeous desktop backgrounds for each month of the year. October’s were released at the beginning of the month (unsurprisingly) and they’ve taken them a step further with the inclusion of a calendar on the backgrounds. There’s plenty to choose from in each set – there’s 45-odd in October’s.
Secondly, I know Todd’s a great font fan and there’s an article here with 30 high-quality free fonts (some licensing restrictions apply. The article in itself is a work of art as it shows you what the fonts look like. Most of the fonts are text but there are a couple of specialised ones, such as the clothing care symbols. I look at the fonts and the designs and just want to be creative.
