PSD Quickie #2 – The Pinwheel Effect

A popular effect in graphic design these days is something I like to call the "Pinwheel effect." I'm not sure if a term for this has really been coined yet or not? Feel free to enlighten me below in the comments section if you know what to call it.

Anyway, this effect is extremely simple to do and will allow you to add something to your background to give your project a little more pizazz. This works great if you need to create a quick advertisement for a client. You place all the text spaced out neatly around the canvas the way you want it. Then you realize that you're sort of embarrassed giving your client text on a solid color background and you've used just a straight up color gradient too many times? Go ahead and throw a simple pinwheel in the background that's a lighter shade of your background color. Simple!
