Happy December everyone! I would like to up the quality of my daily designs for the remaining 31 days of Circadian Creative 2012 by creating free desktop images for you to use on your computers! Think of it as my thank you gift for faithfully following me during both the 2010 and 2012 daily design challenges.
A sub-theme I would like to pursue is typesetting quotes from some of my favorite creative personalities. Other design will include patterns and perhaps some of my photography. The most popular 5 to 10 designs will be converted to iPhone and iPad backgrounds in January 2013. Tonight I chose a great quote from a graphic designer that inspired me early in my career and still inspires me today, Milton Glaser.

Well, it’s the last day of November. I want to thank you all for bearing with through some very lazy daily creations. Between very slight color variations on the same shapes and patterns and displaying ornaments from the Zapfino typeface on a textured background I have to say that November 2012 is probably not my most shining month of designs. However, I will say that sometimes it is the mere slight changes and simple solutions that make a good design a great design. So I got my practice in “slight” during this month.
In my defense of laziness, I have had a very stressful month that has involved a change in jobs. I promise to step it up for December which is the final month and 31 designs of Circadian Creative 2012. I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to finishing this and moving on with new and exciting 2013 ventures!
I hope everyone has had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. The past few weeks have been quite stressful for me and that is why many of the designs have been quick variations on simple themes. I am happy to report that things are looking brighter and I have enjoyed a very restful holiday weekend. I am ready to move forward with a renewed creative spirit. I have a couple cool ideas for the final month of Circadian Creative 2012. I will finalize my plan in the coming week and let you know what my idea is soon. Thank you for following along and I hope you will enjoy the finale 36 designs!
