Inviting talented designers, Chris asked them simply to design one resolution as an iPhone wallpaper. Now open to the anyone you can to design your own resolution in hopes of seeing it through.
There’s a lot more resolutions to check out at the link and if you’re feeling creative you can download a template here.
Very cool. Going to have to check out the templates.
