Free Wallpaper: Trance

Free Wallpaper: Trance

As featured on Abduzeedo's Daily Inspiration #574: Here's a free trance wallpaper for your desktops that I put together. This is the first of what I hope will be many free wallpapers for you to download. This one's all about the gear us trance DJs use/used. The letters in the word trance are made up of various bits of DJ'ing equipment, records, speakers, mixers, vinyls and cables.

For this one, Much of the time and effort went into positioning and sizing the various bits of hardware and vinyls to create a nice detailed effect. I tried to be careful in orienting certain pieces of gear so that it helped augment the shape of the letter. I used various sizes of coloured vinyl records to add detail. Finally I manually drew in some cables to add some flow and detail to the design. Th cables also helped me tie the various bits of gear together so that they didn't appear to 'float' on top of each other as much. Hope you like the wallpaper.

Scott, this is fantastic. I have seen this type of thing done with foliage to make up the letters, but never the equipment you have used. It works really well. Definitely going to keep an eye out for more of your work! Keep up the great work, Mike.

Hey Scott, keen to get this printed on a canvas for my DJ room with your permission of course. If you are happy to agree any chance grabbing the highest res output file as possible or is 2560 x 1440 the max?

Thanks :)

Hi Rohan, absolutely mate you are more than welcome. The 2560 x 1440 is the highest resolution that I have. However I can email you a copy that is less compressed. Check your email :)

About My Blog

This is my blog. I built it from scratch. I am not a huge fan of Word Press, which I feel has become rather bloated and messy these days. My blog is the heart of my web site, and is my main method of being connected to you guys and the wider web.

My blog will be a source of many things from my DJ related music news, podcast episodes, sporting results and a showcase of my latest designs. Beyond that, I'll be posting things that are on my mind: Things I find motivational; health and lifestyle tips; musings about the issues of society; or wonderful news about space exploration.

If you haven't realised yet, my blog is about lots of stuff. There's no theme here. Just the musings from inside my head!
