At The Web Bureau, we’ve decided to challenge our talented design team to come up with a creative desktop wallpaper calendar each month to represent a particular concept or theme.
This month, our Senior Designer Glenn Drain has stepped up to the challenge.
Olympic Summer Desktop Wallpaper
Glenn has called his wallpaper “Olympic Summer”.
You won’t have to think too hard about where he got the inspiration for his design from, given the daily news updates on the Olympics which begin in London this week and continue into the month of August.
Summarising the creative thinking behind his Olympic design, Glenn said:
“With the rare event of the Olympics being held in Great Britain, I thought I’d mark the occasion by creating a wallpaper celebrating the achievements of British Olympians. Using the London 2012 typeface, I have arranged the lettering to create the shape of the 5 Olympic rings. They contain names of a selection of British Gold medallists and Olympic record holders through the ages”
Glenn’s design has been submitted to Smashing Magazine which runs a monthly wallpaper design competition. Smashing Magazine was founded in September 2006 to deliver useful and innovative information for web designers and web developers.
