As a contractor at Microsoft on the WDG Design Support team I was called upon to handle a wide variety of design needs. Perhaps 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. While 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 that tapped into the geeky appeal of this bandanna-ed kitty. At the moment this free theme enjoys a 4.9 star rating with 78 reviews on the Windows Store, and I will stop looking at ratings and comments so that I can forever remember it that way!
The Adventures of Ninja Cat!
Get the Desktop Wallpaper theme at the Windows Store! The theme includes some wallpapers created by my talented coworkers. All wallpapers come with single screen and widescreen/dual-monitor versions, redesigned with additional art.
