Hampus Olsson, the designer behind popular OnePlus wallpapers, is back with OnePlus 5 soft assets. Olsson posted the journey behind these new OnePlus 5 wallpapers on his blog, stating a greater focus on the individual shapes. Abstract.
I thought I would experiment with macro photography this time, together with my dad, who was currently visiting me in India. We got a bunch of plastic containers which we started pouring acrylic, ink, and mediums into. We captured a bunch of photos of the fluid mix, while it was changing pattern quickly. Many of the photos could be used in various ways, like being wrapped onto 3D surfaces, or mixed to look like hot lava and cold winds to complement the final artwork. However, most of these photos weren’t used. Instead, I created a more refined and subtle style that was developed to fit the style OnePlus was looking for with this phone.
The final artworks have a greater focus on the individual shapes, blending into its surrounding, barren environment. The focus became the centerpiece, which is abstract, yet easy to grasp. I love how these wallpapers turned out, and I will experiment with this style more extensively in the future.
Available in 2K, 4K, and “Never Settle” versions, the official OnePlus 5 wallpapers are now available for download. We’ve posted a few shapes below for what to expect from Hampus Olsson’s artwork on the OnePlus 5. Grab the all-new OnePlus 5 wallpapers (.zip) now!
