Percolate for Android & iOS: Wallpapers Inspired by Material Design & Textile Patterns
Our philosophy at Percolate is that enterprise software needs to go beyond the desktop and be fully accessible via mobile devices. That’s why we have a full suite of Percolate applications for iOS and Android. When Apple released their latest version of iOS last fall, we decided it’d be fun to design some Percolate-style iOS 7 wallpapers to go with the update. They’ve been a sleeper hit for us and we decided with the release of Android L to produce a new set of smartphone and tablet wallpapers.
In their introduction to Material Design, Google states that their goal is to:
Create a visual language that synthesizes classic principles of good design with the innovation and possibility of technology and science.
We took inspiration from those ideas as we developed these wallpapers. Like with the branding for Transition, we sought to create sophistication and depth from a simple set of colors and patterns. The wallpapers also drew from textile design and since we sometimes make T-shirts of our patterns, they had to hold up equally well as fashion as they would a background.
“The strategy was to design patterns that had a basis in technology and incorporated the Percolate brand identity,” said Michele, our lead designer on this project. “The organization of the different shapes and lines create systems that represent connections and movement. For example, Boxed In (my personal favorite) was inspired by the notion of creating connections between data, people or ideas.”
We hope you enjoy the wallpapers on whatever device you are using.
