Stationery Icons, Soccer Icons And Atlantic WordPress Theme

Last year some of our readers complained about the lack of diversity in the sets we have released in 2008. We've heard you, we came up with new ideas and we decided to offer our readers a wide variety of different sets. From now on we are going to release more specific, more practical and (hopefully) more useful icon sets — not just social icons or RSS icons.

Icon Set

We start 2009 with a stationery icon set, a soccer icons set and a fresh Atlantic WordPress theme. Please let us know if we are on the right track.

Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: January 2009

Desktop wallpapers can serve as an excellent source of inspiration. However, if you use some specific wallpaper for a long period of time, it becomes harder to draw inspiration out of it. That’s why we have decided to supply you with smashing wallpapers over 12 months.

And to make them a little bit more distinctive from the usual crowd, we’ve decided to embed calendars for the upcoming month. So if you need to look up some date, isn’t it better to show off a nice wallpaper with a nice calendar instead of launching some default time application?

Smashing Wallpaper - january 09

This post features 40 free desktop wallpapers, created by designers across the globe. Both versions with a calendar and without a calendar can be downloaded for free.

Please notice:

  • all images can be clicked and lead to the preview of the wallpaper;
  • you can feature your work in our magazine by taking part in our desktop wallpaper calendar series. We are regularly looking for creative designers and artists to be featured on Smashing Magazine. Are you one of them?

So which wallpapers have we received for January 2009?

Today we are glad to release three icon sets, one Photoshop brushes set and one exclusive WordPress-theme. A couple of more presents will be released over the next days. Happy New Year, folks!

Christmas WordPress Theme For Free Download

We may be a little bit late to the Christmas party, but late is usually better than never. In this post we release a very compact, magazine-like theme designed especially for events such as Christmas. We hope that the theme may be useful not only for this Christmas, but can also be used in general, for various purposes. This theme was designed by InstantShift as an exclusive Christmas gift for Smashing Magazine readers.

Release

The theme has a 2-column-based layout and, is based on Christmas and holidays and has some fresh appealing funky icons. The PSD source file of the logo image has also been included with the package. This theme design can be used for any project and will be useful especially for event-related projects.

Smashing Christmas Icon Sets

In December we asked few designers to come up with some creative, beautiful, memorable yet usable icon sets. Some designers had a tight schedule and couldn't get work done in time, but three designers agreed and delviered their high-quality Christmas icon sets — right in time before the deadline. In this post we are glad to release three beautiful high-quality Christmas icon sets — you can use them for free without any restrictions whatsoever.

Smashing Christmas Icon Sets

You can use all sets for all of your projects for free and without any restrictions. You can freely use it for both your private and commercial projects, including software, online services, templates and themes. The set may not be resold, sublicensed, rented, transferred or otherwise made available for use. Please link to this article if you would like to spread the word.

Light Blurs Brushes and Decoration Pack For Photoshop

Over the last few weeks, our readers have complained that we have been releasing "way too many freebies". Apparently, we have been posting "too many filler articles" containing freebies that can be found elsewhere on the Web. We would like to make it clear that we do try to release useful things, and we do try to keep the high quality of these freebies and it has never been our intention to fill our publishing schedule with freebie posts.

We are going to continue to release freebies from time to time (though not as often as we have over the last months), and we'll make sure they meet our (and your) standards of high quality. Please let us know your opinion in the comments section below and in the poll below. Thank you.

Light Blurs Photoshop Brushes

In this post we release two sets, a Light Blurs Photoshop Brushes, a set of 23 high-quality "light" brushes and Vector Photoshop Brushes Decoration Pack, a set of decoration brushes for Photoshop.

Photoshop users are able to benefit from the vast amount of high-quality resources that are freely available to the community. Brushes get a lot of attention, but custom shapes are also extremely useful in the right situations. Finding a custom shape that has already been created can save you some time and headaches in your design, and fortunately there is a very wide variety of custom shapes available.
