Featured Desktop: Emilio Bello

Posted: 01 Sep 2011 08:00 PM PDT

This is the desktop of designer Emilio Bello (click the image for the full size version). It’s main feature is a dark textured wallpaper displaying some healthy national pride. The desktop contains just one icon, which might be a record here.

Emilio is a Spaces user, and prefers to see the day and date in his menu bar along with the time, which is the way I think it should be.

We’ll let Emilio introduce himself:

Hi, I’m Emilio Bello, a graphic designer from Dominican Republic and just wanted to share my desktop with the Envato readers. Cheers!

So, what do you think of Emilio’s desktop? Let us know in the comments.

Would you like your desktop featured on Envato Notes? Upload your screenshot somewhere on the Web and let us know about it on our Write a Post page. Or upload it to Flickr and tag it with #envatonotesdesktops. Either way, add an interesting description. Each week we'll choose and publish a new screenshot.
