Desktop Wallpaper: July 2014

This month’s inspiring desktop design comes from UK-based designer Stephen Wildish, whose studio, Wildish & Co, creates unique “creative solutions that smack it!”

Wildish explains that he was inspired by a 1964 George Orwell essay called “Politics and the English Language.” At the end, he lists five rules for writing. Rules that can be used for everything:

(i) Never use a metaphor, simile, or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print
(ii) Never use a long word where a short one will do.
(iii) If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out.
(iv) Never use the passive where you can use the active.
(v) Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.
(vi) Break any of these rules sooner than say anything outright barbarous.
