This set of wallpapers was created as part of the explorations for the Microsoft Launcher re-brand and launch.
The concept for these was pretty straight forward: Show organic light emitting particles, quite similar to a lava lamp, showing off attractive colors that people might want to see as wallpapers on their phones. I created a flexible particle and lighting setup in After Effects, found some interesting distribution seeds and rendered out the scenes in high resolution. The whole project took a couple days.
This project was super fun to do, and impressed a few of my colleagues. It was challenging to run these by the brand team and ultimately they wanted to go with a more linear, hard angles approach for the final shipping wallpapers.
