HDWallSource – the World’s Best HD Wallpapers.
Discover and Download the World’s Best HD Wallpapers. was established on December 16th, 2013 with the mission of providing the online community with an easy way to download the latest HD wallpapers. Prior to the launch of HDWS we felt that the majority of wallpaper websites were making the process of downloading your desired background more complicated than it should be. We noticed these websites presented you (the user) with many complications such as: missing downloading links, broken images, promotional requirements to obtain a download button, and the beloved pop-up advertisements. These obstacles leave you frustrated and provide an ineffective way to download a wallpaper. In reality, the process is simple and that’s the way HDWS aims to keep it.

Standing Out

HDWallSource has a few dinfining elements that make it an unique wallpaper source. It may go unnoticed to most, but the majority of wallpaper sites that exist today use auto post technology to publish there content. In short, this feature assists the website owner by scanning the internet and collecting images from the defined keyword. This is the main reason we see low quality, copyrighted material on numerous wallpaper websites. At HDWallsource, we do things differently by handpicking each HD wallpaper and uploading them individually. Furthermore, our staff makes sure to pay close attention to our user experience. Our responsive website allows you to browse our wallpapers on your computer, tablet and mobile devices with ease. Once you have discovered your favorite HD wallpaper, we offer a hassle-free download process.
As of today, HDWS provides our community with over 48,000 of the worlds best HD Wallpapers across 37 different categories.

Visit HDWallSource today and let me know what you think!

About Go130

GO130, LLC was founded upon a model of customer centrism because the founders ( that there weren’t enough service providers out there that truly embrace such a model as their foundation. As much as some like to show an appearance of caring about their customers, internally they are driven by nothing but the bottom line of their financial statements. At GO130, we are run a bit differently than the rest and we are confident that you will find this to be the case just by your first interaction with us.

Website Design – My Past & Present

After recently discovering my very first portfolio (which was released in 2007) I was astonished to notice the tremendous quality difference in my designs, and how far my style has progressed over the years.  The lack of style, inconsistent spacing, poor colors  palettes, rough gradients, and incorrect text format that my early designs possessed is beyond disturbing.  It generates the question, “what was I thinking?” but then I remind myself that this was once quality work that I was proud to showcase.

Growing up you are constantly reminded that practice makes perfect.  I’m aware that my designs are far from perfect, but allow this post to be yet another example of what practice and dedication can achieve over time.

Portfolio Update

Welcome to my new portfolio!  Even though it feels like I just released my previous portfolio design, I knew a change was needed.  My last portfolio utilized the tumblr backend which constrained me with some limiting factors.  If you’re a frequent visitor to my website, you’ll notice that my ‘works’ or ‘projects’ section has been reduced tremendously.  This is just a matter of moving forward and showcasing more recent designs.  However, if you’re like me and enjoy comparing the ‘new’ vs ‘old,’ I got you covered! I’ll be keeping my tumblr account ( to personally keep a directory of all my work (yes, even back to the day I first started.)  Just recently, I was able to dig up my very first portfolio. Scary to look at now, but it also displays a good example of how you can improve at something when your time and energy is set forth.

With this new portfolio, comes a better experience for you.  Some awesome updates include;

  • A more in-depth look at my recent projects,
  • Higher quality images to showcase my designs,
  • Updates, and the occasional useful blog posts,
  • The ability to comment on my posts,
  • Updated about page (coming soon),
  • Archives page to easily locate what you’re looking for (coming soon),
  • and FREE resources (coming soon),

These past 7-8 months have really been a step forward for me as a designer.  I’ve been so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such amazing companies.  (Northeastern Illinois University, KnownHost , TMZVPS, JFAWealth, FrostBite Networks, Michael Ryan and The Boom! Boom! Book, Hypernia, and so many more!) These next couple months I’ll be working just as hard to improve my skills, and hopefully establish relationships with more great faces.
