The LG G6 wallpapers: the story behind their making

You’d think that stock wallpapers would be computer-generated images with not much soul and backstory to them, but in the LG G6’s case you’d be wrong. The Korean company has taken a more authentic and personal approach and has made the wallpapers from actual physical sheets of card stock.

LG has shared a behind-the-scenes look at the process and it sure looks like a lot of work for just a wallpaper. The designers went all arts-and-crafts on it and drew circles with compasses, used utility knives to cut the paper, measured angles with protractors – who knew these were still a thing.

But if you thought they’d just plop all of this on a table and photograph it, you’d only be half-right. The paper and plastic composition was then suspended in the air so the team could further experiment with angles and lighting. Once those were finalized, a 2:1 passepartout was brought in to simulate G6 display proportions and snap – you have yourself a wallpaper.
