Nature in my opinion is the best form of inspiration. More specifically, trees always held a special part in my heart. Symbols of freedom and sustainability that engage our eyes in a true feast of colors and formations.

I have to admit about my soft spot for vectors. When I first set my eyes on this form of digital art, I almost instantly started experimenting. There is so much talent out there and the vector art community has been offering amazing designs for users to download and use as desktop wallpapers.

There are hundreds of sites offering desktop wallpapers on the web. However, the Desktopography Project offers a truly enchanting collection of nature and topological themed wallpapers, created by talented designers, destined to "bring tranquility to your desktop, feel the wilderness and give your background a breath of fresh air…".

When I first discovered Theme Forest I was quite amazed by the variety of their cool site themes. Skillful designers create web templates with particular attention to both aesthetics and functionality. Creative, fresh and eye-catching, these themes can be your next portfolio site.  Highly customizable and easy to use, you don’t have to be a web guru to pull this through and even if you have questions during the installation procedure, most of the designers will willingly provide useful tech support. And what about their prices? You won’t believe it!

I’ve got to say that The Meet Market is just getting better and better every year! Just like last Christmas, the venue was in Technopolis Gazi in Athens, only this year it was hosted in two different buildings allowing many participants to showcase their works and also lots of space for the visitors to move around. Excellent!

Many new creators joined the Meet Market team. Inspiring objects, jewelry, clothes, decoration objects, records, food, created an exciting atmosphere. Plus good mood, good tunes and good prices! That really made the place ideal to shop Xmas presents while having fun, meeting people and checking out the new trends in Athens.

Join the Meet Market in Facebook.
