Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: July 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 40 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 July 2009?

  13. 13

    Vlad, Cafundo and Yipori are great as always, but the rest is not so good…

  15. 15

    Best theme “Raining Sunrise”, it’s perfect for this italian summer: rainy never stops!

    FANTASTICO. Wow. After the last month
    where I couldn’t find my style. This month
    the collection is a amazing. It is good that
    you can automatically change desktop pics
    at your mac :D

  17. 17

    This is a great idea. Thank you so much! I like so many of them, I don’t know which one to choose. :)

  18. 18

    nice collection again …

  19. 19

    Man i wish we could get them like a month in advance i have 3 monitors here at work i’d love come tomorrow to have June on my left monitor, july in the center, and august on the right….

  20. 20

    I love Deep Sea Diving! thanks for the great desktops :)

  21. 21

    Is anyone else having immense trouble viewing these? :(

  22. 22

    My favorite is “Bronze Addiction”.

  23. 23

    I’ve seen better months :p I guess I’ll stick with one of last month’s for a while…

  24. 24

    wow really cool wallpapers!

  25. 25

    Great post!!

  26. 26

    The flying lizard is my favorite one :D

  27. 27
  28. 28

    Room: Great wallpaper, but physically impossible IRL (perspective is way off)

  29. 29

    love firefly

  30. 30

    its okay… but not the best this month… sorry…. i love the last month more

  31. 31

    Just July is my favorite, but its funny how the quote explains the number of days (31) and the calendar has too few of them (30)

  32. 32

    I’ve loved:
    “When The Day Comes” and “Cutting Smashing..”

  33. 33

    Who in Goz name would use any of these?

  34. 34

    Hmm, perhaps I should have submitted mine. I don’t think it would have looked out of place:

    The wallpaper was based around Julius Caesar’s quote “It is better to create than to learn! Creating is the essence of live”

    I will submit an August version for next time

  35. 35

    June was better but now is great too!
    But I will stay with my cat’s last month wallpaper ;)

  36. 36

    Summer Fun is awesome ;)

  37. 37

    Wow, these pack a great punch. I may submit something next time. Thanks!

  38. 38

    Nice designs. However, the majority lean towards the feminine side. How about some sports wallpaper designs? It’s baseball season in North America.

  39. 39

    It’s nice that you guys give a platform to us, the users, but please do some quality control.

    Blue Grunge
    Sweet Child o’Mine
    Raining Sunrise
    Summer Sun
    4th of July Cloud
    Mad Mind

  40. 40

    what a ugly collection :-o

  41. 41

    Please could “Just July” resubmit the wallpaper to show 31 days so I can use it.

  42. 42

    Not the best collection ever. This is the second time you get under your usual standards (last time was Xmas – yes I do check this every month).

    What happened with the last one? Not only is not good, it’s hideous.

  43. 43

    they are awesome backgrounds…thank you

  44. 44

    Perdon pero esta vez me quedaron debiendo, estaaaa remalos estos fondos…..horiblessss

  45. 45

    I don’t mean to be rude, but what is up with Sweet Child o’Mine? I can understand if people were to post an exeptional amazing baby-shot that has amazing technical qualities and a damn cute baby, sort of like Anne Geddes style, but this is just.. well, the baby is average, the technical qualities are not good, if you look at it full-size it isn’t even sharp. Why would I want somebody elses regular baby snapshot on my monitor? Is it just me who don’t get this submission?

  46. 46


  47. 47

    Cutting one

  48. 48

    I always get excited for these! I chose Summer Dream for this month. Thank you!

    My fav is the very first one When the Day Comes. I also like the Summer Fun one too. :) But there really aren’t too many to chose from.

  50. 50

    There are two vanishing points in “Room” :(

  51. 51

    I haven’t been crazy about the last few months but this month I have a few that I am having a hard time choosing between. Of course, there are some more feminine like one poster mentioned so maybe that’s it. There are questionable ones too but I find a few like that in every batch. What one person doesn’t like, another might find interesting…

  52. 52

    Beautiful images. Thanks!

  54. 54

    Hmmm… I have to agree actually, not the best lineup.
    It is the first time EVER I havent found one that I liked =/

    Thanks anyhow =)

  55. 55

    Firefly ….. fantastic

  56. 56

    The “Leap of Faith” is fantastic!!! That is a timeless piece that will never get old!

  57. 57

    Not the best selection we’ve seen so far.. way too many leaning toward the feminine side..
    Looking forward for next month’s though.. keep them coming..

  58. 58

    NIce Collections! Thanks. I am downloading
    1. When The Day Comes
    3. Ele-Centric

  59. 59

    I especially liked Ele-Centric and Vlad Studios’ When The Day Comes.

  60. 60

    Go with “Go Green”

  61. 61

    I Usually download about 7-10 smashMag calendar wallpaper in each months. But i only pick 4 rite now. Not the best, but still good, though. Thanks

  62. 62

    I’m sorry but I just do not like the Smashing logo on some of these. It takes away the beauty of it, and it gets in the way of the design. Some of these are great but the logo just takes away from that.

    Leap of Faith, for example, is complete with dark colors, but there in the corner is the orange logo.

    That kind of goes with any other logos though. I don’t want to see text links inserted in wallpapers, and then put them on my desktop. I know the artist wants to get credit for their work, but I just don’t like it.

  63. 63

    What I liked most is Go Green!

  64. 64

    Great collection as always!
    My favourite is Beach :D

    Thanks at all :)

  65. 65

    good efforts.. still can make better next time

  66. 66

    U make my day! :-) Cheers

  67. 67

    aie, c’est assez moche là… c’est même tout pourri votre sélection!

  68. 68

    Absolutely breathtaking works.

  69. 69

    Thanx again for the great wallpapers! It is winter in our country (South Africa), so it is good to have a sunny and fun background to warm up the winter days! Keep up the good work! :)

  70. 70

    sorry…there´s none for me… :(

  71. 71

    its okay… but not the best this month… june was the better month

  72. 72

    so nice, but it’s a pity that now ALL of them widescreen only ((

  73. 73

    Some great illustrations there that clearly took a lot of effort. Pity then that a few let the list down badly.

  74. 74

    Loved “when the day comes”

    The last one was just bad.

  75. 75

    Sorry Guys Didn’t liked even a single wallpaper.

    My wallpaper selection criteria is pretty simple.
    I choose dark color wallpaper, with less effects on left side of wallpaper. This gives good readability for icons on my desktop.

    Moreover as dark wallpaper are soothing to eyes.

    Previously I have always liked few wallpaper from you guys but this none fits my criteria. Hoping for good wallpaper next time.

    P.S. : I use windows with icons on left side of desktop.

  76. 76

    Hi Smashing Mag.

    So nice that you kept this monthly feature – and even though the wallpapers also didn’t really match my taste this time, I support the contont because some people acctually spend some time on creating theese for free, an contributing to the community… I can also see, that others get great pleasure out of it. :)

    I did still enjoy looking them through. :)

    If you want highend-wallpapers: go out and buy one… This monthly feature gives people the chance to experiment with various topics and methods, so there can still be some trends in there to figure out if you’re looking hard at it, and if you have some imagination yourself… ;)

    I’ve chosen Summer Dream because it was the one that triggered my imagination the most…

  78. 78

    I’ve found a little mistake in “just july” calendar. July has 31 days not 30.
    Calendars for this month are agreat, as always ;)

    Missing some Hot-Summer-Beach Wallpapers.

  82. 82

    The selection is surely great, though some of calendars are simply unreadable or almost invisible. Nevertheless, why not to use a prog like Screen Calendar or Active Desktop Calendar or Screen Calendar to have calendar wallpaper for each month without downloading them again and again and without any nag logos?

  83. 83

    Having vacation at Redang at mid-july with friends, Love the Friends, and beach. (((0_0)))

  84. 84

    Brillo as usual… I swear next month ill do one for ya hehe

    Another Yipori month for me!

  94. 94

    Awwww not as good as June but still nice. Not sure if I’ll find one I like :(

  95. 95

    alright I pick Magic Forest, it is very nice.

  96. 96

    Lovely as usual.

    I’m usiing ‘Firefly’ right now, but will most likely end July using ‘July Sentense’. I had the June one up for about 2 weeks and LOVED it. Please keep those coming, can’t wait to see the August sentense :)

  97. 97

    I checked this out with great expections.. I din like any.. i ll keep the last month’s wallpaper.. thanks anyways

  98. 98

    Really??? Not one single desktop with some reference to the 4th of July? (Sorry, the ‘cloud’ is hardly a reference) A little disappointing. Not the best collection I’ve seen. Still love the mag though.

  99. 99

    perfect jobs !

  100. 100

    Cafundó: July has come! Spread the News! – dis is wht my “favwap” is !

    I agree with The_Reveller: this set isn’t such hot stuff as it could be, plenty of bland submissions – but if you don’t think it’s up to par, make some great ones for everyone, show your skills, and get your name on people’s desktops with some exceptional work! :D I would like to do one for August or Sept, I’m not sure if I’ll have the time though – making something to distribute free doesn’t take the priority over clients and other important parts of life, but think of it as free advertising for your design ability! :D Can’t wait to see next month’s inspired collection!

    Edit: Yes, I’m beginning to work on one so I’m not a complete hypocrite :P and if it slips to back-burner status sometime this month I’ll submit it for the month after that!

  104. 104

    I enjoyed most of them…

  105. 105

    When The Day Comes, Cutting Smashing Calendar,Gustav Mahler and, July Sentense I the best.

    I enjoy your magazine! Each month I come here for my wallpaper! Congratulations! Thanks!

  107. 107

    Summer Fun is my choice this month. Thank you for the great art and calendars. I really enjoy seeing them here each month.

  108. 108

    I like a lot of these…however, I really don’t want the calendar. Are there calendar-free ones somewhere…or would that just go against the project itself? Like asking for Italian dressing on a Caesar salad? That happened to me one time when I was waiting tables through college.

  115. 115

    very bad collection i ever seen !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @ 99:
    I wasn’t trying to make an obvious reference to fourth of July, because this site isn’t only for Americans, so I didn’t want to discourage anyone from using mine. :)

    Not the very best…

  118. 118

    Just July is prob the best but it fails epicly

  119. 119

    Nothing says summertime better than “Summer Fun”!

  120. 120

    If I have to pick, “Go Green”… Tho this month’s selection is probably the worst I’ve seen here.

  121. 121

    Summer Fun is cute!

  122. 122

    Thanks ffor the great calendars. I like most of them, but the ones that is the nicest is Summer Time, lots of colours, beautiful motives and the most important all put nice together

  123. 123

    Some great ones again! Thnx!

  124. 124

    I really liked “just july” BUT the calendar is missing the 31st. Sorry can’t use a bad calendar. OOPS…. the comment on the picture talk about it having 31 days.

    All the calendars are really original and the pictures are GREAT. I’ve switched to firefly.

  125. 125

    some really great ones, as always! thanx for the share

    I’m just a little sad that the one i loved isn’t available for my desktop dimensions (1280*1024) but i found another cool too :D

  126. 126

    Great collection :) I await these every month!
    loved “when the day comes”, “cafundo news”, “simple life”, “go green”, “beach”, “summer fun”
    keep up the good work everyone!

  127. 127

    OMG I Loved Gustav Mahler. one of my favorite composers. Thanks a lot guys.

  128. 128

    But where are the PSD files the designer mentioned?

  129. 129

    It’s been so long since I’ve seen something worthy in these selections. I mean, some are good, but nothing outstanding.

    On a side note, no offense, but the person who sent a wallpaper of his/her baby, has nothing to do here. There’s no “smashing” value in that image and it’s not interesting for anybody besides the baby’s family.

    Cafundó for me this month

    As a resident of the southern hemisphere some wall paper that reflects the season we are experiencing would be nice.

  131. 131

    Summer Sun looks like the tutorial from Photoshoplady …

  132. 132

    I chose “Go Green”, thanks!

  133. 133

    Just July for me :D

  134. 134

    Some more great designs, as usual. Would have been nice to see some more winter designs in the list as well as the summer ones. Maybe I will have to put in a winter one for August. :-)

  135. 135

    most of them are nice and it s hard to say which particular one is the best, maybe “rating” is a better way for us to express our feeling…

  136. 136

    what is up with calendars starting the week with Monday instead of Sunday? i just can’t get used to that, sorry.

  137. 137

    for me it’s ‘blue plant’, it has to be floating and not with
    that much schnickschnack

  139. 139

    Hi guys… I certainly appreciate the effort, but unfortunately not the best collection… Next I’ll submit something… Thanks anyway

  140. 140

    I’m using the Deep Sea Diving one :)
    It’s nice!

  142. 142

    It is the first time I havent found something I like… In past months i couldn’t decide which one to use, but this time I can only give my compliments to a few designers… The rest of the wallpapers are just not the quality I’ve used to see on Smashing Magazine… they are not bad but they are not SMASHING…

  143. 143

    It’s a shame I have to edit out the flasing red logo every time, it messes up the design. Could it be possible to also offer versions without the logo? :)

  144. 144

    Thanks for the wallpaper!

    My favorite is Firefly, as I like dark soothing wallpapers for work.

  145. 145

    I do like them, but other wallpaper post rock more. Thanx a lot thought

  146. 146

    “Magic Forest” is the only one that I find appealing.

    I can recognize the talent in “When The Day Comes”, though not my cup of tea… the rest aren’t really worthy of being on a design Website in my opinion.

  147. 147

    Nothing interesting this month!

  148. 148

    These are all very girly… flowers, fairies, babies, girls…

  149. 149

    my fav is Summer Dream! gorgous!

  150. 150

    To: 73. Vanilla Man (June 30th, 2009, 11:46 pm) so nice, but it’s a pity that now ALL of them widescreen only ((
    Er, seriously? Most of them have regular sizes, too. I’m seeing lots with 1024×768, etc. And to the rest of the negative people, I question your desire to be so negative. If you don’t like the selection, look somewhere else, or, better yet, make your own. Geesh. These people put a lot of work into their wallpapers, regardless if you like them or not. Try to be polite instead of being jerks.

  151. 151

    Its cooooooooooooooooooool designs

  152. 152

    The best certainly is Cafundo! Great theme, guys!

  153. 153

    Firefly… love it

  154. 154

    I liked When The Day Comes.

  155. 155

    Awesome….really love these wallpapers…wish these for all months!

  156. 156

    Ciesiel is right, I think 2008′s July (which I clicked on by accident) was a better collection.

  157. 157

    wow.. Awesome….

  158. 158

    Amazing one ………great calender


  159. 159

  163. 163

    No patience for parents who think everyone needs to see their “beautiful” child. If I wanted a picture of some kid on my desktop, it would have to be one I know.

  164. 164

    liked cafundo, but I´ll stick with June´s selection…….

  165. 165

    Nice infos thanks for share:))

  166. 166

  174. 174

    JUST JULY – Very cool, however, i only noticed it now ( end of the month! ) but where it reads ” July ,,is the seventh month… with the length of 31 days”
    Um, True, but the day counter indicates 30 days. I know its a SLIGHT mishap, but I think its these TINY details that make or break designs when dealing with graphics and the content of this website.

  175. 175

    its awesome work keep doing that !!!
