Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: December 2008

Advertisement

Desktop wallpapers can serve as an excellent source of inspiration. However, if you use some specific wallpaper for a long period of time, it becomes harder to draw inspiration out of it. That’s why we have decided to supply you with smashing wallpapers over 12 months.

And to make them a little bit more distinctive from the usual crowd, we’ve decided to embed calendars for the upcoming month. So if you need to look up some date, isn’t it better to show off a nice wallpaper with a nice calendar instead of launching some default time application?

This post features 55 free December desktop wallpapers, created by designers across the globe and sent to us by the designers themselves. Both versions with a calendar and without a calendar can be downloaded and used for free.

Please notice:

  • all images can be clicked and lead to the preview of the wallpaper;
  • you can feature your work in our magazine1 by taking part in our desktop wallpaper calendar series. We are regularly looking for creative designers and artists to be featured on Smashing Magazine. Are you one of them?

So what have we received for December?

Happy Holidays

"The wallpaper design includes a snowman in a red scarf, along with different illustrated objects to form the letters spelling “Happy Holidays”. The design concept is a modification from my holiday postcard I am sending out to family and friends this holiday season." Designed by Janice Go2 from USA.

Art

Best night of the year

"This wallpaper design reproduces the most representative and best night in December – Christmas. That night when you are glad to receive presents and share the happiness of snow with your family is represented in this wallpaper. Merry Christmas! I did this design because I wanted something simple and representative. I’ve picked these symbols because there are the standard things that someone should have for a good Christmas: family, snow and gifts." Designed by Andy Gongea88 from Romania.

Snowboys

So I created an illustration to live up my dream a little bit." Designed by Oridus Artic295132 from Indonesia.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08133

Paper Snowman

Designed by Desktop Designing143 from USA.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08144

Smashing Skating

"This wallpaper was created on the very first snowy day of this year, and was inspired by some flashbacks from my childhood, when we spent time on the frozen lake, and it represents the demythologization of the past, trying to distance the present from the big ideas that drove the “modern” age. It took so little to make us care free those days." Designed by Bojan Ilic from Belgrade, Serbia.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08154

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08209

Dark December

Dark December was inspired by my first visit to Brasov, Romania in 1999. I was 13 at the time and I thought it was the most inspiring scenery on earth; it felt like a dream. Its dark and gloomy streets and old architecture made it an experience I’d never forget. When the fog fell down over the old part of the city, I got a glimpse of what it would have been like living in Dracula’s Transylvania. Since then, I’ve always wanted to visit it during the winter months; “Dark December” is what I think it would look like”. Designed by Steve Gherebean219 from USA.

It was created completely in Illustrator and Photoshop." Designed by Pica-ae or Anne Elster273252 from Hamburg, Germany.

Spamless Winter

"I’m a blogger who got a lot of spam these days on my site. The amount of spam sent to me is awfully a lot. Because spam is disturbing so I just wish I will be sent less spam in December. Since this wallpaper is for December, I made a character of spam that looks like a snowman with a wishing text that everyone will get less spam in December. " Designed by Oridus Artic295132 from Indonesia .

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08296

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08307

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08317

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08339

Modern Winter

“I was inspired by crisp winter days and cool colors. I wanted to keep it light and airy, yet modern”. Designed by Seth Nickeson349 from USA.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08350

Vanitas

"December is a rough month for a lot of people: holidays, Seasonal Affective Disorder, cold in the northern hemisphere. I deal with all of these every year, and every year, I find it oddly comforting to turn to the great vanitas paintings of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. These paintings are amazing still lifes, often with a theme of death, or decay, time passing, the futility of pleasure…At the end of the year, whether it’s winter or summer, it’s time to take stock, evaluate what we’ve been doing, what we want to spend our time and energy on next year, and the vanitas aesthetic is one I think a lot of us would like to tap into, even if we don’t know the name. This wallpaper was made in Photoshop CS3, by Elizabeth Yalkut, a New Yorker, with Creative Commons-licensed photography by Kessiye360 and freely-available fonts." Designed by Elizabeth Yalkut361 from New York, USA

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08362

Lettersoup

"Being a graphic designer with a love of letterforms, especially handlettering, I enjoy exploring the ways that new software/technology can offer a new vantage point from which to explore old traditions and disciplines. This piece of abstract lettering was drawn ink on paper and brought into a 3D program I have called Modo. In 3D space I apply lighting, cast shadows, bend the surface and set the camera to look through a refractive lense which distorts the artwork in unpredictable but interesting ways." Designed by Rod Sawatsky372 from BC, Canada.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08373

Beatific

"I believe winter in the nordic countries is where the distinct, minimalistic, nordic style stem from. In winter nature here is scrubbed down to its most basic shapes and forms. I have a real hate/love relationship with winter, but I have to admit, it does serve a nice setting for the beautiful people here." Designed by Niklas Ångman383 from Sweden.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08384

Art Grunge

" I thought I would participate in this upcoming months desktop wallpapers. I made this one morning, with photoshop. I love grungy stuff, so i made that the main the theme. I added the sound waves to demonstrate a loud contrast with the floral desingns. My site is still under contructuion, since I am a novice in web design and have been teaching myself, but my url is www.stephssite.exofire.net " Designed by Zaudith Wilson394 from USA.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08395

Boys World

"I saw this scene in my dream last night. At the moment I woke up I felt that winter is coming. The boys are ready." Designed by Jana Jelovac405 from Belgrade, Serbia.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08406

World Harvest

"This wallpaper is based on a graphic novella I have been working on which should have it’s first section completed by Christmas / New Years. It is set in about 20 years time and involves a grungey story about the society we’re in danger of developing… World Harvest is about the plight of people under the foot of historic injustice… and it’s an opportunity to mix my passions for writing, photography and design." Designed by Steven Clark445416 from Hobart, Tasmania.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08417

Inevitable Imagination

"The theme for the December calendar was pretty straight forward. I wanted to portray as sense of emptiness as the month of December tends to minimize the sense of joy which is apparent in the months of Summer. Sure there is the Christmas season but the winter brings out the heavy outerwear which engulfs everyone and people tend to channel out everyone around them mentally. You start seeing less and less people out and about. Everyone is blending in. It all seems a blur now. We are an imagination again." Designed by Umer Tahir427 from Calgary, Canada.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08428

The Simple Lines

"Only simple lines, reflecting the chaotic spread confusion of time and mind." Designed by Rodrigo Grola438 from São Paulo, Brasil.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08439

Natural Grid

"The theme of this wallpaper is the natural grid structure. This photograph is taken of the Tesselated Pavement at Eagle Hawk Neck, Tasmania. While it looks like a man made path it’s the result of ocean tides across bare rock." Designed by Steven Clark445416 from Hobart, Tasmania.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08446

Fire

Designed by Marco Colognola from Roma, Italy.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08456

Candy Cane

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08467

Let it snow

"A fun December/winter wallpaper for those who are ready for snow. Inspiration? Well I pretty much hate the winter and the cold, but if it has to be cold it might as well snow! So this is my winter theme, letting me know there is some hope for that special white stuff falling from the sky. Be sure and download the no calendar version so you can use it all winter long. There is even a little something extra on the no calendar version :) " Designed by Steve Mullen477 from USA.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08478

Matrioshka

"I really like Eastern-European and Russian traditional art and December is my favorite month in the year. So when my eyes fell on the Matrioska I brought back from Prague, I decided to make a December calendar on this theme." Designed by Mitternacht488.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08489

Revolutionary Love

"My December calendar actually started as a graphic for a program to collect money to build wells in African civilizations and help to really make a difference this holiday season. I liked the graphic so much that I decided to make it a wallpaper to share with everyone. The concept of Revolutionary Love is to put others in front of yourself and make sacrifices to impact the world in such a way that those who see can only see love." Designed by Mike Monts De Oca499 from USA.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08500

My White Christmas

" A tree and the snow, a very Christmas atmosphere." Designed by Ecmedia di Cucco Elisa510 from Italy.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08511

Feliz

"This is my theme for the x-mas-month December, with the best wishes to everyone. Merry X-mas and a happy, busy and successful new year! " Designed by Steffen Schmitt521 from Spain.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08522

Peace

"I’m Canadian – hence the moose! And I thought the Santa hat was a playful touch. Most importantly, no matter what or how we celebrate in December, I think we can all agree that peace on earth is a worthy goal, and that, in fact, it does begin with us." Designed by Michelle Cormack532 from Vancouver, Canada.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08533

Coke Lasts in December

"This wallpaper symbolizes that Coke doesn’t die in December, and that you should drink it. I made it because I really liked the design on coke cans, so I decided to emulate it." Designed by Hayes Potter543 from Raleigh, USA.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08544

Freak

Designed by Michal Trzebuchowski from Poland.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08554

Yellow Heart

"I am dedicating my December wallpaper to my favorite Japanese Rock star, Matsumoto Hideto, who was born in December 1964. My inspiration was mainly from the style of his signature guitar model, which is also called “Yellow Heart”." Designed by Athena Emily560 from UK.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08561

Illustration Wintershades

"I wanted to create a feeling of winter, cold, icy, but warm and peacefull. The idea for this design came through my mind when watching the lates video of Kylie Minogue (The One), the shapes repeating themselves. I only wanted to work with white and shadows, and for the background a bit of a winterfeeling. That ‘s why I called it Wintershades." Designed by Nadine Perreman571 from Belgium.

Smashing Wallpaper - december 08572

Stop Terrorism

"The design is a blend of good typography and two-tone contrast that communicates a strong message ‘Stop Terrorism’ after the recent ‘Mumbai Terrorist Attacks’. The line ‘Live & Let live’ is a very famous quote by Swami Vivekanada. The wallpaper aims to re-ignite the humanness and passion lost in us today. The design also tends to awaken the each indiviual of the nation" Designed by Aashish Solanki582 from India.

    Little Girl: desu desu desu!! (inspiration is from an anime character with a green and brown eye)

    Also another gem is the “Less spam for december” one.. The major Srisbi botnet was taken down about a month ago, you can search for McColo, so we have been getting less spam in the last few weeks because of that. Unfortunately, another one is starting to pick up.

    Thanks for the great selection, as always!

    A bit disappointed with this months. Not as many good use of Typography compared to Novembers. Missing some colors especially during a holiday month like this one. Just not quite feeling it on these this month. But there are exceptions to my feelings. There are a few good ones in this bunch. Just an overall sensation I am speaking of. Lastly disappointed that I only have a choice of 2 wallpapers with my resolution of 2560×1600.

    thanks a lot! my favorites are “let ist snow” and the “skating couple”. @smashingmagazin: perhaps a poll would be nice? btw: would have liked some more typography wallpapers.

    I’m moved by the contributions from Serbia: they’re all dark, powerful, and specific yet seem to come from the same sensability. They’re also so dour, I’d be aftaid to live in the place if there was nothing brighter. Whatever Serbia has gone thru the past twenty years, I hope it wasn’ t as bad for happiness as it appears to have been good for art.

    Many wallpapers are very plain and related to Christmas.
    You guys should include only very good works of design and typography, even though there may be only a few such wallpapers.

    Go Umer Tahir, show Calgary some love with that gorgeous wallpaper <3

    Though, I must disagree that December is a lonely month. I love winter! Sure it’s cold, but when everything is covered in snow, it’s absolutely gorgeous.

    Thank you for your comments, Sholom. I am positive that I am talking in the name of Jana J. also, when I say that your comment is the result of what we are trying to accomplish. It feels good when someone notices our “brighter” side of “darker” life.

    I have to say that most of the wallpapers are gorgeous, however…
    In most of the wallpapers the “Smashing Magazine” logo is just annoyingly big of totally out of style. I dont know whether others think the same but I would very much appreciate it if there was a bit more work done on blending the logo in.

    Just my 2 cents

    I just made my own out of type, I am sure there are some pre-built ones out there though. You might have a bit more flexibility creating your own.
