Minimal gradient wallpapers usually utilize incredibly smooth color transitions from one to maybe two or three other colors. The beauty is found in the subtle transition and the blending from one color to the next. However, these chunky gradients really caught my eye. Tuns out this “Making Waves” collection is a craft beer-inspired design.
“Making Waves” gradient wallpapers
Quickly becoming an iDB Wallpaper of the Week regular, @BasicAppleGuy found himself entranced by the “lavender tones” in the Chasing Clouds beer label, pictured below. Combining, what I can only assume are two of his passions, great design (and craft beer) and the 2021 M1 iMac colors, the entire “Making Waves” beer wallpaper collection was born. Additionally, the collection features a black and Apple-logo-six-color design to round out the offering.
Despite curating the iDB wallpaper gallery, I do not actually change my device wallpapers regularly. But, this wallpaper collection got me to update everything in my arsenal. I have been switching between the purple and orange variations, found below.
