Behind the scenes of Windows 10 Hero Image from GMUNK


    Microsoft went to an insane level to create the new desktop wallpaper for Windows 10. Gone are the grassy hills of XP which was a simply photo with some Photoshop retouching, instead this hero image involved cameras, lights, lasers and seriously a ridiculous undertaking to create an image. Sure it’s an important image, it’s the showcase, hero, stand up and pay attention graphic but watch the video and you’ll understand how much effort went into it’s production.

    Blasting lasers, pumping smoke machines, colored filters and falling crystal dust. Not all desktop images are created equal. The iconic Windows 10 image is created by world renowned, San Francisco-based design director Bradley G. Munkowitz aka GMUNK.

    And the result of all that time, money and creativeness.. is this.. Let us know in the comments what you think.
