I was tasked with updating the wallpapers for Microsoft Surface devices launched in 2020. Being a part of such a prestigious project was truly an honor, and knowing that these creations would be displayed on devices worldwide was a humbling experience.
Involved meticulous attention to detail, as we wanted to ensure that each design was visually striking and aligned with the brand’s ethos. Drawing inspiration from various sources, I’ve crafted a collection of wallpapers that seamlessly integrated with the Surface devices’ sleek and modern aesthetic.
Working on this project was a remarkable experience, and I am thrilled to have contributed to the visual identity of such a widely recognized brand.
