The Desktop Wallpaper Project featuring Andreas Samuelsson

Andreas Samuelsson

Good morning! I hope everyone has a had a good week so far, it seems like it’s flying by for me personally. Today’s wallpaper comes all the way from Stockholm, created by a wonderful young man by the name of Andreas Samuelsson. Andreas has this uncanny knack for making work that looks extremely simple and beautiful at the same time. He’s also amazing at using off-kilter color choices, something that still perplexes me to this day. His work has been featured in The New York Times, Arkitip, he has his own If You Could poster… the guy is definitely a rising star.

His wallpaper is an awesome blend of shapes, letters, and symbols, which are all kind of remind me of the blog. I LOVE the face with the giant jaws on the back of it’s head, I’m guessing that could be a rabid black fox perhaps? The 100% wool tags and the Asian tea pots are also rather rad as well. Definitely check this out on the iPhone as well, it looks really sweet.

On a side note, Andreas is also releasing a limited edition wall calender for 2009, and only 50 are being printed. It’s an A1 sized poster and is going to be selling for $15 + shipping, which is quite a steal.
