Despite my… syndicating differences with Interfacelift I still regard them as primary source of high quality wallpapers. On other hand most of those are photographic and heavy on details.
Amit Agarwal had posted yesterday about Simple Desktops which offers wallpapers of just as high quality but simple and minimalistic in content.
What it offers
Site is ongoing collection of wallpapers that strive to escape excessive eye-candy, but remain pleasant and interesting.
All wallpapers come from submissions, site itself merely hosts them.
There are several strict rules wallpapers must follow:
- single 2560×1600 resolution, no choice but large enough to be easily resized or cropped to any size needed;
- no gradients, shadows, etc;
- no words;
- no attribution on image.
These rules effectively subdue explosive graphics in favor of those that are clear and simple.
Can’t say I love every wallpaper on site, some will only tick if interests match, others play with color schemes that border unpleasant for my taste. Still concept is great, there are enough to choose from and new ones are getting added.
PS I wonder if I release JBS-compatible feed for this – will it explode in my face as well. :)
