As a contractor at Microsoft through Allovus on the WDG Design Support team I am called upon to handle a wide variety of design asks. By far, the most entertaining, and the highest profile of these requests was to create a theme of desktop wallpaper based on the unofficial Windows mascot, Ninja cat. Adapting illustrations from the Microsoft library and creating original art in that style, I took much of my inspiration from classic movies and TV shows tapping into the geeky appeal of this bandanna-ed kitty. At the moment this free theme enjoys a 4.5 star rating on the Windows Store, and I will stop looking at ratings and comments so that I can forever remember it that way!
