I just found out that Finnish designer Marimekko give free monthly desktop calendars courtesy of How About Orange, one of my favourite blogs. Some of the downloads come as desktop wallpapers, Facebook cover photo or Iphone backgrounds.
I love Marimekko – their bold, outsized prints add a great pop of colour. I especially like their bed linens for children’s rooms because they are bright and cheerful without being cutesy. You are never too young to appreciate good graphic design!
I’ve printed off these designs for children’s crafts – they are great for collages, card making, etc. Won’t your child’s godmother be surprised when she gets a home made birthday card that features trendy Finnish design?
