Wondering what desktop wallpaper will be shipped with your Windows 10 PC? With the consumer release date of Windows 10 fast approaching, Microsoft has unveiled the Windows 10 default desktop wallpaper and logo.
It isn’t just a logo in blue actually. The concept behind the making of the wallpaper elements prompted Microsoft to share a video across. Led by motion graphics designer Bradley G Munkowitz, the team of artists built two installations in a photography studio in San Francisco to essentially create the Windows logo out of light. You can watch the creation of the logo in the YouTube video below:
The project’s all about one-point perspective, and … looking at the logo itself as a portal that was allowing us to look into space,
In order to do that we had to develop some kind of weird techniques, kind of a camera mapping of the logo.
In addition to light, the team deployed a number of other techniques including camera mapping, lasers, and projectors. The developer said a ton of design went into the entire design process Microsoft gave them ample room for experimentation. The end result being a dark, misty background with beams of light forming the Windows logo. The video does betray that the logo blends in with the overall dark theme of Windows 10 to a great extent.
The only possible downside so far on the design front could be that the wallpaper won’t be animated. We’ll be surely getting a peek at the other design elements of Windows 10 as July 29 approaches.
