We're Poolga: iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch wallpapers for the rest of us. Curated design and illustration for mobile devices. We focus mostly on illustration, graphic design and typography.
Poolga came to life in 2007 when we got our hands on the (then) revolutionary iPhone. Frustrated by the lack of decent wallpapers out there, we struck upon the idea of showcasing established and up-and-coming illustrators by distributing their work for use on mobile devices. Today, Poolga is one of the few online outlets flying the flag for good quality imagery – no cheesy landscapes, scantily clad babes or muscle cars here!
Poolga (pronounced "pool-gah") is the nickname that a friend used to call her baby before she was born. In Spanish "pulga" means "flea". The baby is now called Sofia.
Thanks to our friends, mentors and all those who have helped us. These include: Luis Mendo, Javier Arce, Mónica Basterrechea, Christine Eberhardt, The GoodFellas Network, The Fox is Black, Endtopic, Alex Mathers, Carbon Ads, Juju, Todojunto, Quim Fonoll, app.itize.us, Appsolute.ly, CreativeApplications, Shilpa Baliga, and of course, the contributing artists.
Poolga works on an invitation only basis. If you feel your work fits here send us a link to your portfolio. Unfortunately we can't reply to all messages, but we promise that we will look at all portfolios.
