Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action, and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours? 

​Motherland Design is the blogging bin New York-based designer Chris Streger uses to store inspirational design he finds, well, everywhere. 

While counting down to the new year, he's asking designers to create their own New Year's resolutions as prints, and desktop, iPad, and iPhone wallpapers for daily (and stylish) inspirational use. 

The latest is by Brooklyn-based designer Lydia Nichols who is resolving to "write more letters."

"It really is amazing what a hand written letter can do for someone," Streger writes. "Something my fiancé preaches all the time and I couldn't agree more. Maybe this year you get ahead by going back to writing a letter, by hand... you remember how to do that right?" 

The new year is around the corner, and Streger's "TO RESOLVE PROJECT" continues. Check out the collection on the project's website, and download the template to create your own here

He'll be posting the designs as they come in through January 1.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
