Seeing as it was ice week here on TFIB I thought it was fitting to have this week’s wallpaper be equally as chilly. So I reached out on Twitter and got a response back from the wonderful Mary Kate McDevitt, who you might remember from the wallpaper she collaborated on with Ten Paces and Draw. I had an idea of having a giant iceberg, and Mary Kate totally pulled through with an amazing design. Here’s how she got to her design:

As I was brushing up on my knowledge of icebergs, I was inspired by their lonesome lifestyle just drifting off to sea and decided icebergs live a bit like hermits. Which made me think of the Bjork song “Unison,” and the lyric “I thrive best hermit style.”

I love the texture and color and type she made, this wallpaper is amazing. A huge thanks to Mary Kate for busting this out so quickly for me and doing such a wonderful job. Check back next Wednesday for a brand new Sights & Sounds series, it should be great.

    I read your posts about the upcoming wallpaper on twitter and I’s glad to see that it’s released now.

    Mary’s hand lettering is quite impressing and not comparable to regular typefaces, so yeah, I think you got a good artist for that wall ;).
