SAVER SCREENSSON


GEOMETRIC SCREENSAVER FOR MAC OS X

 

The older I get, the more interested I become in form and beauty. Siggi Eggertsson’s new screensaver is filling some of that need in design: It is beautiful.
— Stefan Sagmeister
 

Saver Screensson creates unique patterns on your display by randomly stacking vector stencils to create a virtually infinite, but aesthetically consistent set of possible outcomes. Screensson contains 340 individual images and 19 predefined color palettes, generating countless multilayered compositions.
 
But describing this is not as much fun, you should really see it.

Saver Screensson is a passion project and we made it because we wanted to have a nice screensaver. You can pay as much as you like and if you could share it with your friends we would greatly appreciate that. Thanks!

 
 
 
You just need to stop working for a few minutes and the journey begins. Awesome!
— Eike König, HORT
I’ve been using it since Friday and I can’t imagine going back to any sort of standard screensaver.

Some of the images and patterns that Saver Screensson creates also work well as wallpapers, so we've created a collection of them for you to download and use, either on your computer, phone or tablet.

POSSIBLY ASKED QUESTIONS


FREQUENTLY GIVEN ANSWERS

Q: The Screensaver does not work on my PC or my really old Mac, why?

A: Saver Screensson requires Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) or later versions to work. 
 

Q: Will the screensaver ever be available for Windows? 

A: Probably not... 
 

Q: I like how it looks, where can I see something similar?

A: Siggi has been developing this style of geometric shapes and color combinations for the past 10 years. You can see a lot of his previous work on his website, www.siggieggertsson.com.
 

Q: What is this awesome music in the teaser video?

A: It's "Pólýfónía" by Apparat Organ Quartet, great song, great band.

Q: How many different images can Saver create?

According to our calculations there are over 19 nonillion possible outcomes.
 

Q: How do you guys know each other?

A: We met at a Quake LAN tournament when we were 15 and 16 years old. We discovered that we were both interested in design and web stuff, so we started working on some random things together.
 

Q: Why is it called Saver Screensson?

A: In Iceland we don’t really have family names, instead your surname is traditionally your father’s first name, with -son or -dóttir added to the end. You can read more about it here. Since Saver Screensson is a direct descendant of the screensavers, we thought it was an appropriate name.
