Desktop Wallpaper: Space Frames
14 July 2011
I'm a big fan of a black desktop. It's easy on the eyes and icons are highly visible. But you have to have a dash of colour to add personality, so it's a fine balance between style and stark.
A few years ago, when I was heavily into Processing I wrote a program that dynamically generated spacey looking spectrum wallpapers, with the aim of offering it to the public so that 6 billion people could each have their own unique desktop wallpaper. Didn't work out. (But I used one of its outputs as my own wallpaper for the last 4 years).
A bout of recent procrastination made me realise that I hadn't changed my wallpaper in far too long and this time instead of breaking open some code I headed to Illustrator to make some jaunty little geometrics.
Now, I've got a new wallpaper and you can have one too! I'm calling it Space Frames and you can download it by clicking on the image below. Bon appetit!
