Designer Molly McLeod created wallpapers that combat our habit of constantly looking at our devices

There is a definite irony in using your phone's wallpaper as a reminder to get off your phone. But designer Molly McLeod, who is currently a fellow at Code for America, decided that a certain irony was needed, and was an effective way for her to combat her own phone-use habits. So, she created five playful smartphone wallpapers that use the available real estate on a smartphone's screen to remind people that there is more to life than their phones.

McLeod created the project as a response to articles she had read about digital detoxing.
