Wallpaper of the Week – Love Color

Advertisement

This is the seventh edition of Wallpaper of the Week here at Design Informer. The wallpaper for this week is entitled Love Color. I designed this wallpaper about 3 months ago for my personal use. I was trying to do something creative with a quote by John Ruskin and decided to make a wallpaper that exhibited a lot of color.

Production & Process

"The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most."
-John Ruskin

I found this quote interesting so I decided that it would make for a good wallpaper. I quickly opened up Adobe Photoshop and got to work. I started with some wavy shapes that I colored purple. I decided to duplicate this shape into different layers and I painfully rotated them into place to fill the entire canvas. I also changed the colors on some of the layers. For the text, I decided to use Rockwell as the main font.

I really like the kinetic typography8 style so I decided to layout the text based on that style. I was pleased with the final result and this wallpaper actually stayed as my desktop wallpaper for over 3 weeks.

Quick Summary

  • Estimated time: 1.5 hours
  • Font: Rockwell
  • Tools: Adobe Photoshop
  • Total Layers Used: 72

    Wow, this has got to be my personal favourite of all the wallpapers here. Love the harmonization of colours, but I am particularly impressed with the typographic composition of the logo/quote. Great font choice.

    A very well designed wallpaper! :)

      Thanks Josh, I’m really happy that you liked the wallpaper.

      It took me quite a while to layout the quote, I kept tinkering with it until I thought it looked good. I think I spent the majority of my time on the quote when I was designing this wallpaper.

      Thanks Daniel. That’s what I wanted it to be. I wanted the quote and the colors in the back to really mesh well together, and I guess it worked. :)

      Thank you. I experimented with different colors. I was going to go with CMYK or RGB but those are overused. I decided to come up with a different color palette and I really love the way that these colors blended with each other.
