This week we were asked to create a self portrait using the files and icons found on our desktops. The screen savor I created was full of notifications while still attempting to reflect a sense of organization. This represented my aesthetic. However, no wallpaper will look the same. In an article found on Ultralinx, a website showcasing trends in tech and design, the “minimalistic home screen” was featured. I found the idea of a clean aesthetic for someone’s device to seem a bit odd and impersonal. Nevertheless, as Jason Huff stated in his article, a desktop “…speaks to the aesthetics of a particular work-flow and personal space”. Therefore, if someone prefers a sleek look of matching black and white icons on their phone, then I say, to each their own.
