    Hey everyone, I've made a few university of auburn desktop wallpapers and I was hoping to get some feedback on them. I'm not a professional in graphic design by any means, just trying to be creative and learn. Thanks!

    Always a little cautious of downloading from sites like that.

    If they're simply images use a site like http://imgur.com/ instead.

    :)

    Looks like a bunch of versions of the same thing. :confused:

    Your original...

    Then add a texure and vignette...

    changes in size and opacity of your vignette.

    Keep up the good work :rolleyes:

    I'm sorry am I missing something here? It's the same logo but with a different filter :confused:

    I honestly can't tell what you are going for here OP.

    All of the images look too similar, and IMO the texture is too distracting, I notice the texture and vignette more than the logo.

    Perhaps a few different designs each doing something with the logo would be more appealing.

    Awesome!



    I think it's creative of you to use your state as the shape. In my opinion it's not a cool shape, though, and creates awkward negative space. My suggestion would be to complete the map, just highlight your state in the center. That would make more sense as a wallpaper: a zoom'ed in map, highlighting your state with color and the state logo.

    Good job, either way!
