Apple Dark Mesh

i had seen a layout much like this elsewhere, obviously based on the aesthetic appearance of the mac pro/g5 tower. really wanted to make use of it, but the original, which i am unable to track down to give due credit, was a painful, hot, white eyesore. this version maintains the same concept, but is a very pleasant, sullen, dark version that is easy on the eyes, monitor, and power supply.

dimensions are 1920 x 1200, i added the shadows, glow, and upped the saturation on the logo. the design thereafter is not my own. i can make a color variation upon request, but the blue seems to be the most appropriate, cool color for the environment that surrounds it.

also available in:

plum mesh:

and rust mesh:

iphone version is here:


if you are the original artist that coined the original concept, please message me so that i may give credit to you as the conceptual creator.

well, i'll admit, that's pretty cool. i did not submit this to other sites. i stopped checking this for a very long time, come back to find that it's been downloaded almost 15k times. surreal. apple themes will sure gather clicks, hey?

thanks much. no, sorry to say, i seem to have dumped the psd file at some point, all i've got is the flattened image. but i'll keep it in mind from now on, whenever i get around to creating something worth posting.

could just try cropping off the edges, if that's all that's not working for you, but the overall gradient effect is pretty much stuck on the image otherwise.

not sure about the concept, but the mesh is created by graphex at or it is very similar to this one.
