Apart from accessing information and other details, one of the advantages of the smartphone over the feature phone is the option to customize or design it to match their personality or current mood. One way of expressing themselves through the device is to simply change smartphone’s home screen, or lock screen, wallpaper or sometimes both.
Every wallpaper has some aesthetically pleasing elements that ring to everyone according to their personality. When it comes to OnePlus devices be it OnePlus 3, OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, we have seen some wallpaper be it acrylic brush strokes, emotive textures, abstract close-ups and much more. These are the wallpapers that are carefully designed with attention to detail by a Swedish artist who goes by the name Hampus Olsson.
Apart from designing wallpapers for OnePlus, Hampus Olsson also designs websites, illustrations, branding, games, apps, and fashion to his client including Spotify, GANT, Nestle, Hard Rock Hotel, Holiday Inn, AT&T, and more.
Going back in time, Olsson made his work debut for OnePlus with OnePlus 2 where he tried out clean, ﬂuid art style with layered colored elevations. With each successive phones, Olsson tried out different styles including liquid metallic-style wallpapers for OnePlus X, acrylic brush strokes in a 3D space with new color combinations for OnePlus 3, “Stroke of Genius”, featuring a single, red brushstroke with a dark, monochrome mountain range for OnePlus 3T Midnight Black Edition, ﬂoating object with a plain background for OnePlus 5 and a similar approach with background color melt for OnePlus 5T.
Currently, Hampus Olsson is working on the wallpapers for the OnePlus 6, where he said to be trying on clean, fluid style with mountainous depths, which according to him is more vibrant, and hold a better, more suitable composition to reveal.
When asked about his inspiration in OnePlus Forum, Olsson said, ” For me, inspiration comes from many directions. I’ve always had a creative mind. As a child, I used to paint and craft, when I was six, I made my ﬁrst couple of websites and games. Being able to create things out of nothing has always felt so nice to me. I get inspired by trying out new kind of art forms and new ways of being creative, it inspires me to come up with something challenging and different from what I used to do. I take inspiration from old progressive jazz-rock music, fashion/art magazines, shapes in nature, seeing things from another perspective, visiting new places on earth, antiques, Asian art culture and experimenting with new techniques and mediums.”
OnePlus is all set to launch its next-gen smartphone with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB onboard storage. Moreover, this smartphone is also confirmed to have a top-notch as well.
