Today we’re launching a new site design for Poolga. This is the first major redesign since the birth of the site, making it responsive and easier to browse and find the best art for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
Why the change?
Needless to say, the Internet has changed a lot over the past seven years, and the way that our viewers interact with Poolga has evolved too. We now get more than half of our visits from mobile devices, and many people use Poolga not only as a source of beautiful wallpapers, but also as an illustration showcase and source of inspiration.
Here are some of the redesign highlights.
- The site is now responsive, adapting nicely to all screen sizes.
- Larger thumbnails!
- It’s now easier to filter wallpapers by device screen size. (e.g. iPad Retina)
- Better, clearer navigation. Navigate using the arrow keys on your keyboard.
- Better Artist pages. (Take a look at Dan Matutina’s, for example)
- Introduced the possibility of adding image categories under the hood. Expect to see more about this in the future. (e.g. Collage)
Thanks to all of the talented artists who have donated their work to the noble cause of beautifying people’s phone and tablet screens over the years.
Here’s to another 7 years of beautiful screens!
