I was Googling some old Design*Sponge Desktop Wallpapers to show a friend an example and realized that the last time started this series, it was for Design*Sponge’s 5th birthday. It’s funny how fast time goes by! Now we’re celebrating the Big 10 and I’m thrilled to have the wallpapers back and to have a chance to work more closely with some of my favorite artists.
To go along with our gem series this month, I decided to head straight to my favorite photographer of gems and minerals, Jen Altman of Cisthene. Jen’s book, Gem and Stone, is one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever owned and the way she highlighted the natural beauty, color and light found in gems and minerals really captured the essence of each. Jen has been selling prints of her gem prints online but today she’s sharing a big beautiful Amethyst photo (the official birthstone of February!) to use as our wallpaper this month. Thanks so much to Jen for sharing this gorgeous image with all of us- I hope it adds a little color to everyone’s screens this month.
