The Pier’s End Desktop

When Sebastian submitted his desktop, we were ready to share it as-is, but then he linked to the project at Behance, which included this lovely video of the whole thing in action.

A number of the specific elements here have been customised and tweaked specifically by Sebastian to match the look and feel he’s going for, so if you’re not sure how to get yours to look or work quite the same way, feel free to hit up the Behance or Flickr links below to read more — and let him know we sent you, and love his work!

One more shot of the whole desktop before we part:
