Lefft, my new portfolio site

My new portfolio site has just emerged into the world wide web, blinking in its responsive juices. Have a look at to see some of my illustration and design work.

More work coming there soon.

Photo Magnets for the Photoshoppers

I always find myself wanting to stick more stuff on the walls in front of my computer to inspire and motivate me.  Coming from working in a studio with fashion, textile and print designers I always felt jealous that their office space felt ‘artier’ than mine.

Perhaps these geekily designed magnets in the shape of Photoshop and Illustrator toolbars will help?

After reading Lee Munroe’s post about creative Twitter backgrounds I discovered a list of 20+ Twitter Bird designs.  It seems to be fastly becoming the latest craze to create your own Twitter bird for your blog.  And I’m all about crazes!  Here’s what I came up with.

I really wanted something a bit different and obscure than the traditional ‘cartoony style’ bird so I went for an origami one.  Any thoughts/opinions on it are welcome.  I had a look at some origami birds and then designed my own over the top of the original Twitter logo, using the same colours to make it a bit more recognisable to twitter addicts.

I kinda like the fact that only people who are really familiar with and love Twitter for the right reasons should be able to recognise it.  Twitter has crossed a line recently with Britney Spears creating an account.  Don’t get me started on that.

Anyway, feel free to use the files below on your blog/site if you like it :)  Im a true believer in the open source life so just shoot me an email if you use them. :)  Also you can find me on Twitter at paddydonnelly.
