wallpapers, hand-drawn edition – freebies

Who doesn’t love free stuff? I know I do. I also like doodling, so I thought I’d put some of my doodles to good use and make some wallpapers for you to use! For free! Woo!

Take a look at them all after the cut. Enjoy!

logo transformations

I study marketing,  which means I also study how companies try to build up their brands. Many of you may not even realise how much thought goes into something as basic as a logo, but trust me, there’s a lot. As part of a presentation I had to do for a class recently, I took a look at how the Amazon logo has evolved over the years. I personally couldn’t remember it being anything other than it is today, but 1995 shows us something almost unrecognisable from the Amazon we know now.

What a transformation, right? Now there’s no water texture, no image of a flowing river within a book (cleverly done there, guys) or a claim to being “Earth’s biggest bookstore”. Funny how they had to simplify their logo to show how much larger and more complicated their company had become.

So inspired by this discovery, and Google’s controversial logo change earlier this year, I thought I’d do a quick round-up of some impressive, and sometimes drastic, logo evolutions.

Today I did a little bit of sightseeing in Budapest with my boyfriend and his parents. We went to Várkert Bazár in Budapest, and while it’s not a huge place, it’s definitely a photogenic one. So of course I took a few photos, and here they are! Enjoy them after the cut!

wallpapers! – freebies

I don’t know about you, but I find that whatever wallpaper is on my laptop really affects my mood. That’s why I’m constantly looking for stylish and motivational ones – but there are only so many available, and I tend to get bored of them pretty quickly. Which unfortunately only really leaves me one option – to make some!

So without further ado, here are 5 backgrounds I made using textures made by Pink Sherbet Photography @ flickr (go check out their album if you’re ever looking for good quality free textures!)
