About the Design
One of my favorite things to do is scan my favorite design sites for inspiration, tips and tutorials. I found this fantastic grunge/retro tutorial from Design Instruct, a web magazine for designers. This tutorial is great if you know a bit of Photoshop already, and the outcome was so fun I knew I wouldn’t mind staring at it on my desktop all through the month of July. I pretty much stuck with the color scheme from the tutorial because I loved it so much, but the possibilities of different font, color and ‘swirl’ shapes really lend this tut to almost any style.
