Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: May 2010

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 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 magazine 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 May 2010?

      +1 for “Pile of Days”

      Very close 2nd for “Todo Sobre Mi Madre” tribute. Really nice composition, perfect timing for mother’s day and outstanding movie.

      The pile of days is indeed the most interesting because it is the only one which makes the month it self to the visual. the rest are disconnected from the calendar.
      but as a calendar it is not functional, unless this was the idea, and then it should have been coherent, which is not.
      there’s no hierarchy.

      anyway nice photoshop works, i think i’ll participate from now on. i’ll try to design rather then make wow effects.

      Hey, thanks guys for these kind comments! Really appreciate (:

      @Vanzvik — the wallpaper is somewhat functional as calendar — every line of letters end with a sunday. I know, I know, it’s an excuse, but still (:

      Except that, to do “the death of Internet Explorer” properly, one needs large amounts of high explosive (tactical nuclear weapons would not be excessive in this case). It’s not for nothing that those who have long labored under its yoke know the bane of their professional existence as Internet EXPLODER.

      Very well done, M. Chartron!

    first? oops! ;)

    I love this trashy wallpaper saga on smashing.
    This always cheer me up.

    It is interesting that few wallpapers is always outstanding, and most of them are totally trashy.
    And so on and on and on ….

    What happened with Smashing forum?
    Are forums dieing in general? Like newsgroups…
    And new fast growing social networking sites taking over the Internet?
    So what will be next?
    something much quicker and shorter and incomprehensible than Twiter I sopose…
    Maybe something like this:
    USER1: Fart
    USER2 @USER1: Fart, Fart
    USER3 @USER1 and @USER2: Fart, Fart, Fart

    Have a nice day

    I’ve made this comment before, but I’ll mention it again…There needs to be more calendar options when it comes to the weeks starting on a Sunday (NOT Saturday!). And, after finally finding one that DOES start on a Sunday, Birds of Spring, the month starts on the wrong day of the week! May 2010, does not start on a Thurs. This submission shouldn’t have even been accepted!
    I started using these wallpapers WAY back because of the unique calendar wallpaper you offer. Lately, I am left extremely disappointed.

    well guys, I really like the wallpapers and I use one of them every month, but I think that as such a popular magazine shaping good design trends you should make a more strict selection of the works that you receive…
    I’m not trying to be unpleasant, cause you should give young designers a chance too, but just saying you can be more critical about the works you post.

    My favorite is “Focus on Work”. It´s a basic wallpaper, it has profundity and quite relaxing.

      I chose Focus on Work for my May Calendar. Simple and to the point. Just what I need for this month. Thanks

    I like the Birds of Spring, but the calendar is wrong. I’m waiting for the author fix it.

    The calendar is incorrect on the Birds of Spring image. I just tried to convince a customer that today is May the 5th! Doh!

    Flower Field is really beautiful – I love the cheery little red ladybug! That’s definitely my favorite. I also love the floral designs of Thargelion and May Flowers. Play With Me is the cutest ever and a great photograph.

    Maybe this is more commonly done than I know, but ‘Birds of Spring’ is just straight use of a tutorial from PSDTuts.

    Sorry but Wavular should not be included. The perspective lines aren’t even close…. Some designs should be excluded

    Olivia Bell is great as always (I instantly knew it was her work) and her sisters did a freat job as well – what a family! :)

    I like “May in Grey” too, not typical for May but it is a great picture. As a photographer myself I like wallpapers with a good photo.

    Not a great collection…
    Also, several, including “For all intents and purposes” and “Play with me” only have 30 days… hmm…

    The “Birds of May” is beautiful but the days are wrong. The layout for them is April’s. May has 31 days and starts on a Saturday.

    Lots of beautiful choices. I think my favourite ones are by the Bell sisters :)
    And for those who are disappointed with the calendar being wrong on Birds of Spring you can make your own version with this tutorial from PSD Tuts:

    Please, you need to be more selective. Most of these are really bad. And, the people that whine about not making the cut, you need to stop complaining and improve your design work.

    Wavular, the Great American Road Trip?
    I would like to see how this can make it to the list….
    Then I clicked the link to Design Kompany, from that point I think I know why….
    A busy company with lots of works and clients will never have enough time nor resources to at least score a decent looking wallpaper. Their main interest is just profit and free publications.
    So kudos to the guys at DK for that wallpaper which I believe took so many of your precious hours with skilled resources, blood, sweat and tears.

    Caught a Mistake

    May 6, 2010 6:46 am

    “May’s a month of happy sounds,
    The hum of buzzing bees,
    The chirp of little baby birds
    And the song of a gentle breeze.”
    Designed by Manish Jinwal from India.

    The above calendar is wrong. I think they used the month of April’s dates. Love the design and was going to use it.

  113. 159

    I love the wallpaper and look forward to checking out the new designs every month. But since when is the first day of the week not Sunday? I prefer the designs that use Sunday rather than Monday as the start of the week.

    I love the wallpapers that are featured on this site! I tend to change my desktop every week so this site really helps me with options….it’s the only place I go to now for desktops! I love the calendar option so keep them coming!!! Currently using Birdhouses…..last week was Play with Me. I can’t see the Guitar one and that disappoints…but I’ll be back next week for another selection!!!

    I loved the design of BIRDS OF SPRING by Manish Jawal. Downloaded the wallpaper and lived with it for two weeks. But when I went to pay a few bills and referenced the calendar for May 2010 — it was off by two days! May 1st this year is a Saturday, but this calendar shows it as a Thursday.

    No wonder Mayday became the international distress call!

    Bad wallpaper! Bad wallpaper!!

    I downloaded another for the second half of the month, and wrote to Manish, congratulating him on a great design, but advising him to get his calendar straight!

    Thanks for providing this service to the community, SM.
