Windows 10 Hero Desktop Image
Late last year we were asked to help Microsoft with an exciting project described as “It’s the first thing a user sees when they boot up their Windows experience. In fact it’s probably safe to say it’s the most iconic ‘screensaver’ in the history of the planet.” What they were referring to of course, was the new Windows 10 hero desktop image… a project to which we quickly said “YES!”
As you can imagine the hero desktop image for Windows 10 wasn’t taken lightly, it’s much more than a simple wallpaper. This meant that the planning and infrastructure behind the project had to be seamless, every ‘i’ dotted and every ‘t’ crossed; and that is what Central Planning does best. We sweat the details and manage the process so creatives can do what they do best… create.
Central Planning was involved from start to finish – handling everything from photographer and artist outreach, to negotiation and scheduling, and finally red tape, procurement, contracts, and payment fulfillment.
Oh and by the way, it wasn’t just the hero image…. there are also those other stunning desktop photographs shot across 4 continents. Let’s just say we had quite a bit to do with them as well. In the end we couldn’t be happier with the results, click here for a great mini-doc on the creation of the default image.
