• Cleartones

    I can't help but be a tiny bit annoyed when my cellphone rings and interrupts my conversations or train of thought. Thankfully, I came across Cleartones, a collection of beautifully minimal ringtones that make the world sound a bit better with it's subtle and refined notifications. Says it's creators, sound designer Hugo Verweij and designer Joachim Baan, ‘A ringtone should gently add a functional sound to the soundcape of our lives: Like a ripple in the sand of a curvy desert dune or sparks of sunlight reflecting in the water.’ Check it out here—a tweet gets you a sample download. -Jennilee
