We love pretty wallpapers and are excited to be creating some free goodies for your favorite tech devices. I love the holidays and couldn’t help but make this month a little holiday themed with a dash of Picas & Pixels. We have an abundance of sizes below to fit perfectly for any of your devices. Not sure which one to download for your desktop or laptop device? 1024×768 is generally a safe bet! And don’t forget to check back each month for new wallpaper downloads! -Holly
It seems I’m always looking up the iOS resolutions for various mobile projects, with the ever changing technology (hello iPhone 5 :). And I’ve found it really helpful to have all the specs in one place. If you’re always searching like me, feel free to download my cheat sheet. – Holly
My sister, Heather, collects books and someday when she has a big enough place I know she will have a library of her own. In the meantime, I designed this stamp for her that says “La Biblioteque de Heather” (otherwise known as the Library of Heather). The hello stamp is just for fun. I’ve been thinking about creating more so stay tuned! – Holly
Hello and welcome to Picas and Pixels, a new endeavor by Holly and Brittany, designers turned digital. We both started with print backgrounds and look to it for visual inspiration but primarily work in the digital space these days. Picas and Pixels was born out of having an appreciation for both disciplines of visual design.
We want this blog to be about inspiring, teaching and creating. We’ll be sharing awesome resources that have helped us become better designers and creating goods of our own along the way. Who knows we might even create our own app (we do have some ideas in the works ;)
This is an exciting time to be a designer (esp in the tech industry), so let’s embrace it!
