Today I have the pleasure to share here some of Lisandro Trepeu’s illustrations and designs. If you are a huge fan of illustrations you will surely enjoy this post.
Trepeu is a graphic designer from Cuba who leaves in Rosario, Argentina. I met him by chance through a Dribbble contest I was making. After learning more about him I invited him to participate on a post here in order to share his talented work with some of the regular readers. He studied at ISDI (Superior Institute of Design) and some of his main interests include Fine Art, Cinema and Animation.
Below you can enjoy some of his most amazing pieces, full of incredible details and a huge selections of colors. He definitely loves what he does. I hope you like his work as much as I did. Enjoy
A big thank you to you Lisandro for trusting me with your awesome talent. It’s an honor for me to share your designs here.
In my previous post I showcased some creative free fonts combined with my favorite quotes from the TV show ‘Friends’. I also promised to upload the wallpaper of the design. To keep that promise I gave myself a break from work today to write this post and share the wallpaper with other ‘Friends’ fans from around de world.
I made it in three different sizes so that you can choose the one that best suits with your monitor resolution. If you need a another size let me know using the form below.
Resolution 2560 x 1600
Resolution 1920 x 1200
Resolution 1680 x 1050
You can also share your own wallpapers if you want using the same form. Hope you like this new design.
It’s been more than a year since my last ‘Free Fonts and Quotes’ post and I thought it would be nice to bring that idea back. For today’s post I wanted to do something funny, full of color and unusual fonts. For that reason I decided to showcase this compilation with a selection of my favorite quotes from the TV show ‘Friends’. Let’s see if you can guess which character said each one of the quotes. You will find the answers are at the end of the post.
Some of the fonts are used in more than one opportunity. Below each image you will find the links to the fonts used for that quote, even if they are used more than once. Some are available for commercial projects, some are for personal use only. Before using please read the license agreements carefully just to be sure which use they are allowed.
Very soon this design will be available to use as a Wallpaper. Join me on Facebook to find out when it is already available for download.
You are always welcome to share your favorite ones in the comments below. I hope that you find some useful fonts between this list to include in your future design projects. I also hope some of these quotes will make you laugh. Enjoy!

I always need to be doing something. I’m one of those people who want to do five things at once and I would if it were possible. Generally many ideas come to my head while I’m working. I always have a notebook by my side to write down these ideas, the crazy ones, the possible ones and even the most difficult to realize.
Last week I came up with a sort of crazy but possible idea and as often happens I couldn’t forget the subject and stay quiet until I turned the new idea into a concretion.
I want to find a way of giving my thanks to all those people who downloaded the previous Crazy Ones wallpaper I designed, which by the way is one of the most visited posts of my blog. Many people also wrote to me to ask for a large resolution jpg to print it for their home offices. Others wanted to have a personalized design for their businesses and send me a different text to work with.
After some thinking I came up with the idea of designing a more ‘crazy’ version of the ‘Crazy Ones’ wallpaper. Something quite different from the original one. A good way to achieve this was by using more creative and informal fonts. Choosing the appropriate one was not an easy task but it helped me to enrich my fonts collection.
I hope you like this new Crazy Ones Wallpaper version. You can choose between two options, the dark and the light one. This is just a little token of appreciation but I hope you like it. Enjoy!
Did you already write your wishes for next year? Even Vango did. Well, he actually wrote Santa to ask for a present
Today I wrote this quick post to wish you a magnificent 2014. I hope you had achieved all the goals you set for yourself this year.
Unfortunately this isn’t a happy time for everyone. As some of you already know Vango was adopted from a shelter seven years ago. He has one ear missing because of the bad conditions he lived when he was on the streets.
There are many dogs out there waiting for a family. That is why today I’m sharing with you three slightly different wallpapers. The one of Vango asking Santa for a present, another one without text and a third one dedicated to all of these dogs that have only one wish for the new year, finding a family.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my online place, read my posts and join me on Facebook . Thanks to those who are here from the beginning, to the ones who always comment and to the silent ones. Thanks to those who know me personally, to my clients, to my virtual friends, to my colleagues, to the amateurs, to those who are relatives, to design lovers, to those I only know by name, to my friends… Thanks from me and Vango.
Hope you like it. ¡Vango and I wish you an excellent 2014!

Designing a creative footer is as important as working in all the other areas of a website.
Although the footer usually is the last thing on the page the visitor sees it and it shouldn’t be forgotten. Quite the opposite: I believe that we, designers, should make this bottom area design stand out. For many years copyright information, the website name and, in some cases the navigation links were the most common and sometimes only elements found at the bottom of most websites. Nowadays footers became more sophisticated including more information and also beautiful and creative designs.
The good thing is that you have as many ways to call people’s attention as you can imagine. You can focus exclusively on the design, working on a really eye-catching graphic to make it stand out or you can work an also creative design but emphasizing on the most important information and so, get a more functional footer.
The most effective contents you may add there are navigation, contact information and social media links. All these three elements will help you improve your communications. When choosing this second option always keep in mind that you should guide the visitors to the more relevant contents of the website. It is also the place where you would put a back-to-top link.
Today I compiled some footers I have designed to share. I would really love to see your own designs as well. Please feel free to share them in the comments below. Do you follow any creative process when designing a footer? Which kind of footer do you prefer, the one that focus exclusively on design or the more functional/informative one?
Don’t forget to share your own footer designs in the comments below!
It’s been a while since my last post. I have wanted to write this post for weeks but I’ve been quite busy this last two months. Sometimes 24 hours seem not enough :-(.
Today I have two special wallpapers to share with all of you. As some of you already know some weeks ago I made a contest to participate for two Dribbble invites. I received a lot of talented portfolios and after a hard selection I finally chose the winners. Once the contest was over, I invited them to participate of a post here on my blog and they both liked the idea.
Today I would love to share here with you these two beautiful and talented wallpapers made by them.
Thanks Joseph Ruano and Fernanda Castro for taking time to work on these designs.
Robot Wallpaper Resolution 1920 x 1200
Mr. Ice Cream Resolution 1680 x 1050
I hope everybody likes this designs. I’ll be posting again very soon, promise. I have a lot of ideas and news I would like to share here. Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read my posts
