Upside-downers give you twice the app fun

upside downers: bambu app

The Upside-downers were created for a wallpaper generating app

As a designer, you're probably faced with screens-a-plenty on a daily basis. Whether it be your computer, your phone or your tablet, staring at a blank canvas can be a daunting prospect. Thankfully, the Bambu app (opens in new tab) is here to provide you with enough wallpaper (opens in new tab) options to get that inspiration flowing.

Based in Brighton, Lucy Irving (opens in new tab) has created these Upside-downers to add to the already sterling array of wallpapers on offer.

Inspiration

The Upside-downers are all inspired by the work of people such as Rex Whistler (opens in new tab), who created lots of upside-down faces as part of a Shell Oil advertising campaign in the 1930s (opens in new tab), and the American Illustrator Peter Newell (opens in new tab) who published two volumes of upside-down drawings called Topsys & Turvys (opens in new tab) around 1890.

Each upside-downer is a human and animal that are connected in some way. Red side up is human and the blue side is animal.

upside-downers: magician

upside-downers: shark

upside-downers: caveman

upside-downers: cowboy

upside-downers: explorer

upside-downers: indian
