  Poolga came to life in 2007 when founder Juan Carlos Cammaert got his hands on the (then) revolutionary iPhone. Frustrated by the lack of decent wallpapers out there, he struck upon the idea of showcasing established and up-and-coming illustrators by distributing their work for use on mobile devices.
