Some people know this, and others may not, but I am a web and graphic designer. I’m thankful to have been blogging, via good and bad times, for almost a year. I’m also thankful that we elected someone of historical propositions. So, I decided to give away one of my backgrounds. I’ve been trying to “complete it” for a while now, but it seems to be complete enough.
At one point, this was a test image for me to use on Twitter, but now it sits on my hard drive. But I wonder… wouldn’t it be great to see what another person do with it? So, I attached a “remix” license to it. That means you are free to modified it without my permission. However, I only ask that you don’t sell it and you give credit to me.
So, how can you get this background? Simple.
- Go to http://www.drop.io/obamabackdrop
- Download the image.
Now, even thought you can use it as your Twitter background, you can use it for your wallpaper on your computer as well. But what you see is what you get. It’s a minimalist background built for a widescreen. I think it’s a very nice background for what it’s worth. If you would like to match up with the background, I suggest the following colors:
- background: #ffffff
- text: #000000
- link: #000000 or #ffffff
- sidebar/border: #0488c8
The end result will have your profile looking like this:
Please note that this background is a little dated. The box and what’s under the box on the left is no longer on the background.
So, I hope you enjoy this work. If you use it, please leave your website/page/twitter in the comments so I can have a looksee.
