I came across a tweet from Michael Rockwell yesterday that made me jump for joy:
If you’re looking for a simple wallpaper for your home screen, I have Apple’s linen texture at several resolutions. https://t.co/BuYSFPciVO pic.twitter.com/syNPYGqYgfIf you’re looking for a simple wallpaper for your home screen, I have Apple’s linen texture at several resolutions. https://t.co/BuYSFPciVO pic.twitter.com/syNPYGqYgf— Mike Rockwell (@mdrockwell) August 7, 2017August 7, 2017
I'm always on the lookout for super-subtle home screen wallpapers that won't clash with my app icons. I've almost exclusively used a plain black rectangle on my iOS devices for years, but sometimes you want to breathe a little life into a screen you're constantly watching. When I saw Michael's tweet, I was hit with a blast of both excitement and nostalgia! I get to add a little texture on my home screen and I get a tiny reminder of the skeuomorphism that once was? Sold!
Rockwell's post talks about app organization, iOS 11, his inspiration for creating the linen wallpapers, and a whole lot more.
Go give it a read and then snag that linen wallpaper for yourself! Rockwell's got 'em for all sizes of iPhone, iPad, and Mac!
