About a year ago I did a post about creatively designed tea infusers. People do a lot of awesome design work with tea pots, infusers, coffee mugs, coffee pots, and a whole mess of over beverage related items. Most recently on my radar are wonderfully and uniquely designed tea bags. If you haven’t seen any, be prepared to be blown away. I think anyone would drink more tea if they had these, sadly I believe all of these are only design concepts and not available for purchase.

I think making your workspace inspiring is important, and your computer is often a big part of that. Having a bland and basic desktop background does not equal inspiring space in the least. And if you are me, you no longer have time to make your own desktops like I used to (that was actually how I first started learning to use Photoshop, hurray for being self-taught!) Fortunately there are a great many fantastic and free downloadable desktop wallpapers around the webisphere. I have collected some here. Hopefully they can contribute to your inspirational work spaces:
I still spend a lot of time searching for really great prints about being creative, and often specifically about design. For Christmas I received this wonderful print from etsy about creativity:
A while back I did a post about graphically designed resumes. The fact is, a resume may be the first impression a potential employer gets of you. If you are applying for a design position, or if that is just one of your skills, having a resume that can show a hint of your design abilities is important. It’s doubly so if you don’t have a web portfolio they can just link to and see your work. However, your resume needs to be easy to print as well as visually appealing. Take a look at some examples:
This uses a unique logo and white space effectively for a visually appealing resume

The vertical design here is superb. And this looks great and is a good example of good document design (littlearashi on deviantart)
The orange probably wouldn’t print the best, but otherwise it looks great!

I will keep an eye out for the other ones and I will share if I find anything great! Please share if you find anything amazing.
I am constantly finding new and fabulous prints that I want to hang everywhere, especially around my computer where I tend to do most of my creative work. Since I find them so inspiring I thought I’d share a few and perhaps inspire some of you (did you catch the rhyme?)
