IniGrams personalizes the lock screens of mobile devices and computers. It's more than a wallpaper because you can add your initials. Since I got the idea mid-2012 I've created over 260 unique backgrounds and manipulated 23 typefaces in at least 15 variations each to create a rich feel. Designs range from classic bling to steampunk. The plan is to get IniGrams going and then invite other designers to create IniGrams and sell them through our web site and app.
The idea for IniGrams came to me at an auction. Admiring a smartphone sized gold-tortoise-diamond studded antique card/cigarette case I wondered why we lost the desire to distinguish ourselves by personalizing our possessions. My starting point was inevitably classic designs with traditional materials. It took me some time to shake of the original source of inspiration and turn to modern design and grunge.
