Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: March 2009


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 45 free desktop wallpapers, created by designers across the globe. Both versions with a calendar and without a calendar can be downloaded 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 wallpapers have we received for March 2009?

"I wanted to do someting with the avantgarde font, but because its very used and its very destinct I thought why not do it in 3D.

Anyways, I wanted it clean but with some color to symbolize that its still winter here in sweden but the spring is coming right up with all its color." Designed by Pål Linder19 from Sweden.

Good Luck

"Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Though many think that it’s the “luck of the Irish” – Irish luck is indeed bad luck.

Designed by Marcos Garcia103.

Smashing Wallpaper - march 09272

Stpatsday Spring

"I took a shot of the moss in the back garden to use one day in a design but have never found the need till now.

  11. 11

    These are beautiful and SO inventful! Great work to the artists and Thank you.

  12. 12

    Great wallpapers. I think Maya Sivalingam and her “Magic Horse” piece should have given some credit to Alvaro Guzman and his tutorial

    . . . since she did almost exactly the same thing.

  13. 13

    They aren’t bad but I liked the Februray ones more ! – Nice work though.

  14. 14

    Fantastic collection (again) – thank you so much for keeping it going!

  15. 15

    Really awesome stuff!!

  16. 16

    I like the last one.Very creative work.. thank you so much ;)

  17. 17


    But must say this background is already posted here in the (Really) Stunning Desktop Wallpapers Post? And you guys approved, Wow!?

    (no offence, just a question)

  18. 18

    These are awesome! The Space Invaders calendar is my favorite, but unfortunately, that is a March 2008 calendar, not 2009!

  19. 19

    Wow. How do I choose?

  20. 20

    Hug me forever very good. Thanx. My notebook get a new wallpaper ^_^

  21. 21

    Great way to start a new month. Awesome wallpaper collection!

  22. 22

    Simply , Very nice

  23. 23

    Nice ones. The absence of 1280×1024 sucks though.

  24. 24


    some others are grat, too though

  25. 25

    Jessica, Space Invaders simply has monday as the first day of the week, it’s not for March 2008. Glad to hear that you like it, though.

  26. 26

    Could you start publishing these in higher resolutions? Like 2560×1600?

    Those of us with 30″ Apple Cinema Displays are feeling… ummm… *ahem*… well, disadvantaged.


  27. 27

    Why all the wallpapers for wide screens only? :(

  28. 28

    Wow is really nice!!!

  29. 29

    Thank goodness I have three computers–more to enjoy! Much better selection than previous months. Glad you’ve kept this going, SM!

    Am I crazy or does the ‘Gritty St. Pats’ theme look a heckuva lot like the Apple theme featured on Smashing here: and linked to ???

    Now again, I might be crazy but the ‘Ben.a’ listed at the Flickr link as owning that design probably isn’t the Designed by Chris Wylie from Canada that supposedly designed this ‘Gritty St. Pats’ theme.

    If this is the case I hope something is done about it.

  31. 31

    Great selection! “Playing with typography ” is my favourite!!!

  32. 32

    Some great work here! St. Patrick is my favorite. What’s with the poo though?

  33. 33

    Great collection :)

    But I have a suggestion:

    WHY not to make a some sort of SVN?

    I’m a KDE user, and I can set a folder as a gallery to be automatically changend and displayed as my
    wallpaper. By using SVN I could be able to automatically download newest set of your wallpapers
    and set them as my wallpaper gallery.

    I understand, that this site ears money from visits, so I would agree to have a few commercial on
    wallpapers or even a banner-wallpapers :)

  34. 34

    Martius Blindness is totally great. it shows the maturity level of the artist and is totally current with the times. not as commercially beautiful perhaps, but artistically and emotionally beautiful in the extreme. this artist has real talent.

  35. 35

    I think the ‘Gritty St. Pats’ is lifting elements directly from this wallpaper:

  36. 36

    Every one with 1280×960, love it!

    Thank you a thousand times over. Awesome website, awesome community.

  37. 37

    well tbh, forcing designers to put “smashing logo” on wallpapers is not fair. They make all the work, you just publish and you get credit, and there will be lots of wallpapers floating around with smashing mag logo on them, even though you are basically doing nothing. If your only aim is to help designers to show off their works why logo is a must. Is flickr, deviantart etc forcing their designers, photographers to put their logo ???? of course no!!!! your way is just plain CHEAP

  38. 38

    My favorites are “March-09″ ,”Pizzicato Wail” and First Blossoms .
    Thank you so much …

  40. 40

    Muchas gracias!.

  41. 41

    Nice one, as always, happy you guys didn´t stop the series! :)

    And probably, I’ll create a wallpaper next month, then it’ll come with the launch of my new portfolio

  42. 42

    Yay, two more months and there won’t be any fullscreen wallpapers. You might as well have stopped with the last month’s release. Thanks anyway.

  43. 43

    nice assortment! I think the second one is my favorite.

  44. 44

    Eh, fairly weak selection this month. :/

  45. 45

    I think the calendars are particularly good this month! Thanks guys.

  46. 46

    A… A… AAAmazing :D

    I’ll send this to my buddies :)

  47. 47

    Those are gorgeous.

  48. 48

    Thanks for the great calendars!!

  49. 49

    hug me for ever, loast b/w ,the search are great

  50. 50

    Can we have an article for physical year-long calendars? That would be sweet.

    Great calendars though!

  51. 51

    Love the collection of wallpapers for March! :)

  52. 52

    Nice. Not my taste, but nice.

  53. 53

  54. 54

    Do VladStudio have the release for this month?

  55. 55

    great collection

  56. 56

    I love the “Hug me Forever” one, but I find the display of the calendar to be rather nonsensical. :p

  57. 57

    Urban night won me. great piece. thanks.
    btw, do anybody even get any use of the calendars?
    I find them just annoying and hard to use.

  58. 58

    I look forward to my new desktop all month! haha :P
    Thanks :)

  59. 59

    “Hair” – amazingly awsome!!

  60. 60

    so it will be continued?
    this month nearly every single one is so beautiful

    keep up the great wallpaper post!
    thanks ;)

  61. 61

    I’m a writer. I’m going with “don’t bunt” — isn’t baseball season around the corner? I need the inspiration of BIG DREAMS!

    I’m soooooo glad you guys decided to keep going with the monthly wallpapers. I love my February and will HATE to give it up. But… we must learn to move on and keep the memory.

  62. 62

    a lot of god stuff… some not good enough, though

    actually im just jealous i didnt design any of these! haha

    good post.

  63. 63

    amazing! march is really hard to design for, but these are really awesome.

  64. 64

    @smash: so great you keep up with these wallpapers. Thanks a lot to all of you who are contributing.

  65. 65

    Really inspiring :)

  66. 66

    Wow. By far the best wp calendar ever. Great ending, people, amazing work.

    EDIT: Wait a minute, it’s not over after all? sweet.

  67. 67

  68. 68

  72. 72

    Great post guys

  73. 73

    The Hair is so cool!

  74. 74

    I would use Space Invaders but the week starts on Monday so it would be very confusing for me.

  75. 75

    Thanks Smashing Mag for publishing my dessktop background.

  76. 76

    Awesome collection. My Favorite: April loves March.

  77. 77

  78. 78

    Nice wallpapers!!!

  79. 79

    A really nice collectoint his month, Spring is Coming is my favourite and the one I’m now using.

  80. 80

    really like these calendar’s again – been using them for the last couple of months for desktops.

    i was going to choose ‘how i should fly’ for this month – but the calendar dates are wrong – whoopsie!

    gone with eat, sleep, design instead.

    keep this up,

  81. 81

    Incriblemente buenos, el problema es que no tengo tantos monitores para ponerlos todos :P

  82. 82

    I love to have a calendar of the month on my desktop but I also like variety. I know I can always come to the web site and find what I’m looking for. I like flowers and if there is a holiday in that month I like to have something that represents that holiday. Thanks Smashing Media for giving me that.

  83. 83

    Nice , but februar was better. Sad, that I need to change it ;) By the way: where is personas calendar? i was counting on it.

  84. 84

    Nice, but to much spring when here at the southern hemisphere is coming fall.

  85. 85

    Just found this site in February – I love it. So glad you decided to continue!

  86. 86

    best collections of 2009!

  87. 87

    SO SO SO SO glad you decided not to stop doing this!!!

  88. 88

    super stuff!! gr8 job guys..

  89. 89

    Wish I had more screens. Love this, thanks!

  90. 90

    Our calls for 1280×1024 keep going unanswered. Smashing Magazine… only YOU have the power to change this.

  91. 91

    Though I personally don’t use any of these when they are posted simply because I tend to use my own work, I get a lot of use out of taking styles and techniques from these pieces.

  92. 92

    Good collection. My favorites are “Abstract East egg”, “Spring
    coming” and “St. Patrick”.
    I like “Good luck”, “April loves March” and “Birds Return” is interesting and I like texture and font in “Scrappy Love”.
    And thank you for march calendars!

  93. 93

    Great collection!!!

    #3, March-09 is totally going on my desktop!! I love it!!

  94. 94

    martin, *thumbsup* for HAIR :)

  95. 95

    “crane” is cool!
    and hey, nice portfolio as well! congratulations

  96. 96

    love this stuff, every month look forward to it. “random assortment” seems to think that march has only 28 days. troubling..

  97. 97

    Reinis – I didn’t realize the Space Invaders calendar started on Monday. I’m not used to that calendar style!

  98. 98

    thank you!!
    this month’s selections are great! I like it better than February :)

  99. 99

    these cals are really nice ….
    Please keep me updated for other issues …

  100. 100

    “How will I fly” has a incorrect calendar. It totally threw me off today but it is easily my favorite one here. PLEASE fix it! I love that picture! It would also be great(as a suggestion) to make two versions of each calendar one that has the week start on mon and one that starts on sun. Just as a thought. It always seems like the coolest ones start on the wrong day so I can’t use them
    Keep up the fantastic work!

  101. 101

    Thanx a lot for the amazing calendars….

    These days…I wait for the new month…just coz I can download new calendars from here…You people make my day….!!!

  109. 109

    и почему некогда нет волпейперов для 1440х900 и 1280х1024?
    and why there is no wallpapers for 1440×900 and 1280×1024 pixels?

  110. 110

    Thank you for still giving us calendars!

  111. 111


  112. 112

    I adore Sinem Şenol’s birds! Great work – I will check her portfolio.

    @hooz: I agree 1280×1024 wallpapers would be useful for me as well.

  113. 113

  152. 152

    Amazing! Saved under my fav. Great work!

  153. 153

    so many of these I really really like and could draw much inspiration from… I use dual 1280×1024 screens though. I’ll probably rework one of them to fit stretched between the two monitors, or maybe duplicated on them, but I echo others – it would be nicer to have 1280×1024 provided. That said however, I am SOOOO pleased to have these offered to us and don’t want to give the impression otherwise!

  154. 154

    Great collection!!!

  155. 155

    All the wallpapers are Amazing!!! My Favorite is April loves March…. I really loved the collection.. Every day i use one different wallpaper on my desktop. Thnx to Smashing Magazine.

  156. 156

  157. 157

    i follow the collections every month and i think this is the best collection… thanx

  161. 161

    Love the wallpapers! A lot of amazing/fantastic ones.. but also a few pretty bad ones that don’t match up to the others

  162. 162

    Fantastic collection!
    Smashing Magazine it’s in my favourites for an everyday look.

  163. 163

    very nice website..

    keep it up

  164. 164

    I M SPEACHLESS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  165. 165

    Some great designs in this collection. Being Irish though, just one drawback. When will people realise that the shamrock has THREE leaves – it’s a trefoil – and it has nothing to do with “the luck of the Irish” or four-leaf clover – it’s to do with the Holy Trinity.

  166. 166

    These are fabulous! Thank you!

  167. 167

    Thank you!
    great work

  168. 168

    really great works, but maybe some of them was just “something else”, but not so great :(
    doesnt like Space Invaders, Computer Head, Spring coming, Detail :(
    good ones: Inspiration Inspired, Good luck, Crane
    thanks for all of them

    The link to the 1920×1200 without calendar for the one with the bio of St. Patrick is wrong. It links to the version with the calendar. I just found this site and would like to use that, but don’t want it with a 2 year old calendar on it!
