No matter what they say about information overload on NPR, its hard not to love (yet another) good design blog. The Fox is Black caught my eye awhile back because of their 'wallpaper project.' They invite creative folks to make pretty desktop wallpapers, and then offer them up as free downloads. After a little more digging around, it turns out that the rest of their site is pretty great, too.
(I just updated my wallpaper to the charming illustration by Matthew Dent, above.)
