You’re in a coffee shop or on the bus, minding your own business and browsing your iPhone. You begin to feel that unnerving sensation of somebody’s prying eyes behind you. In a cloud of confusion, anxiety, and shame you slip your iPhone into your pocket and stare out the window. Why are you like this? It turns out that you’re just self conscious about the way that your phone looks!
Everyone wants to be a designer. They’re the coolest people in the room and always rock the sickest logos and hats. Also they have the most decked out customized iPhones out of everyone they know. Wanna roll with the big dogs without doing the legwork? Well here’s a couple of wallpapers that’ll fool anyone around you into thinking you’re a designer yourself.
This is a great starting point for any aspiring designer’s iPhone wallpaper. The contrast of the orange sun with the frozen behemoths floating silently in icy waters is not only visually stunning but carries weight in current climate change dialogs. People will wonder what big ideas you’re thinking about while multitabbing in Adobe Illustrator.
Apart from having the most future-forward stylistic ideas, people associate designers with deep and emotional concepts. The juxtaposition of the plain white text on a gorgeous cinematic backdrop conjures up associations of closed captions on a French arthouse film. This wallpaper proves that there is beauty in unknown or forgotten.
If there’s any place on this planet that was literally made for designers then it’s New York, New York. Brooklyn is the epicenter of all forward-thinking cool design and showing off the bridge that gets you there is a surefire way of proving you’re up to snuff as a designer.
The proboscis monkey wallpaper will keep people on their toes around you. The photograph is such high quality and the marbled eyes of the creature draw you into a liminal state of suppositions regarding the nature of Man and Beast. A piece of visual worth, sure, but a real designer is able to traverse the ever-shifting boundaries of what makes Us tick.
Once you get through the first 4 wallpapers we offered, people will have a pretty good idea what you’re all about. A modern day thinker for future ideas. Now it’s time to seal the deal. Not only do you design but you hustle. You grind. You know time is precious and feigning and this wallpaper says it all. Hands fading into the backdrop clutching the pearls of The Now. When people see this they’ll not only think that you’re a designer; they’ll know you’re an innovator.
