Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: June 2010


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 60 free desktop wallpapers, created by designers across the globe. Both versions with a calendar and without a calendar can be downloaded for free. Windows 7 Theme of June Calendars1.

Please notice:

  • all images can be clicked and lead to the preview of the wallpaper;
  • you can feature your work in our magazine2 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 June 2010?

    Outstanding pieces of art. All the artists do a wonderful job an Smashing Magazine does a great job of sharing theme every month!

    A couple of suggestions for wallpaper designers. On a Windows desktop, all the folders and files are usually arranged on the left hand side of the desktop. So, if you design anything like a calender or a image there, it is very difficult to enjoy the wallpaper or use it as the folder and file names get mixed up with the background image. The vice versa style applies for a Macintosh.

    My 2 cents,

  22. 25

    So many great summer wallpapers. :-) Hard to find many good winter ones in this lot though. Come on Southern Hemisphere – don’t forget to be inspirational also (I would if I could come up with something awesome)

  23. 26

    I like the ….”live design” thanks :)

  24. 27

    LOVING the hummingbird one. Great colors.

    The first one is lovely, but I think the Apple logo is kind of out of place… Was it really necessary?

  25. 30

    Very goode

  26. 31

    Thanks for accepting my wallpaper!!!
    Great set of June wallpapers, congrats to the other designers because these are all -really- awesome!

  27. 32

    these articles need a voting system

  28. 34

    This month it was quite low … i mean as compared to previous entries…
    I was searching for the wow factor but didnt got to see any… not to offend anyone here…

    I personally liked June Sentense

  29. 35

    Beautiful wallpapers, but just too feminine this month.

  30. 36

    ‘Think Different’ gets my vote….this June should turn out to be a special Apple month :o)

  31. 37

    La Solitudine is my one of my favourites! Very nice :) lovely collection of wallpapers as always!

  32. 38

    My vote is for Vulkan! Awesome!

  33. 39

    La Solitudine / Early Summer Sky
    These are my favourite

    Thanks for featuring my June in Montevideo, i am so glad!

  37. 44

    I’m surprised (and disappointed) that just one wallpaper is football themed…

  38. 45

    Hi! Freedom’s Flame is my favorite

  39. 46

    the bookeh state of mind calendar is off :
    so yes, along with the windows suggestion for calendar, is to check that the calendars are correct…

    • 47

      So is the frog theme one. I didn’t realize it until I was off for an appointment. I should have checked it prior to using it. Cute wallpaper though.

  40. 48

    My favorites are “You Give Me Butterflies” by Olivia Bell and “Seagull” by Indeziner. But I use the second one, because there is no 1280×1024 format in “You Give Me Butterflies”.

  41. 49

    Lolz at the use of the FIFA logo. That would never be approved :P

  42. 50

  48. 61

    They’re all gorgeous!! =) I don’t know which one to chose!

  49. 62

    love the “Brigther June”

    Thanks Smashing for posting mine.

    Those wallpapers are getting more and more boring. The first two collections were the best, and the following ones are just pity.

  100. 125

    Would have used the first world cup wallpaper if it didn’t have that silly apple shaped logo in the middle…

    In the Woods – summarizes my thoughts going into this month

  102. 127

    Thanks for at least posting 2 of the world cup.. I know this is not a big deal for americans, but for the rest of the world is pretty important, so it would have been great if there were more options but I took the first one anyway.

    I think this month has amazing designs, it was a shame that I wanted one of the world cup.


  103. 128

    They’re wonderful!
    I like “you give me butterflies “most!
    Thanks for designing the beautiful pictures for us !

    This is the best month so far! I loved so many that I will have to change my desktop background every 2-3 days!!!

    Wow…cool collections i like all of them. I like the one which is in Green … Go Green. Hope to see next month more with Green background

  113. 138

    i love “bike”, but the calendar sits so low in the picture it is hidden beneath my tool bar… so it defeats the purpose. so… second choice is “golden field”, it feels very autumn to me, but is such a beautiful picture i can’t pass it up.

    The last one~~~

    Some of my favorites are ‘Childrens Day’ and ‘Hockey’ which both have a very original style and are really well done.

    I loved the “You Give Me Butterflies” by Olivia Bell. I felt in love by the model. The smile, the hair fallen on her face, the shy way. She’s so cute, so beatiful, so all I like. I felt in love for her.

  123. 148

    “Simplicity” which is why I like it. Clean lines, uncluttered background, easy to read calendar. Beautiful work!

  124. 150

    I choose Golden field, but I agree this month is so quiet

  125. 151

    frog attitude is my favourite….love it.

  126. 152

    “In The Woods” for me!
    i really like a little bit darker wallpapers. hope for more next month! ;o)

  127. 153

    The Flowers of June is my favourite this month, and second is golden field. Both are lovely :-)

    Early Summer Sky is sweet! Thanks SM for providing these cool wallpapers. Rock on!

  130. 156

    I took the Mexican Midnight to remind me of my upcoming trip to Mexico. Can’t wait!!!

      Hello Koji

      you’re right the calendar was missing some mondays. It’s all corrected and available (every twenty formats) on

      Thanks for your interest !

    Hey Smashing!
    Once again al of you designers have produced a work of art. My favorite wallpapers are Cat, Sweet June, Stoneblocks, Do What You Want, Go Green, A Brighter June, Back To The Drawing Board, June Nights On My Planet, Midnight Moon, Children’s Day, and Au Revoir! Hopefully if I keep practicing I’ll enter one of my drawings, but I don’t exactly think I’m good enough!!!

  134. 161

    Every month, I have a hard time choosing a wallpaper for my desktop.
    They are all so great! This month I chose Au revoir since it made me think of the oil spill. I am not a graphic designer but I would really like to learn to make a wallpaper.
    Keep on imagining and producing. Thank you!

  135. 162

    Very Nice, Great Job

    i like “stoneblocks”. its truly inspirational.

  137. 164

    You obviously have a lot of Graphic artist coming to your site, posting their work, why do you not have more posts on Graphics? the last 8 posts you have 6 Wallpaper posts, that means that you only came up with 2 ideas in the last 6 months! (one of which are icons?!?)

    Please keep the wallpaper ones, some GREAT and FANTASTIC tallent… one of the reasons I comit to returning to this site.

  138. 165

    Nice collection :) Slummingbird is the best

  139. 166

  140. 167

    Now I am really gonna hate these designers.. nobody put the wallpaper for the resolution of 1366X768 wide screen monitors. I never get the perfect wallpaper :(. Can you guys please put the size for my monitor?

    but it can be better

  145. 173

    Looks astonishing as always! But its about time creators release these wallpapers for FULL HD resolution 1920×1080 (16:9). I wish to see them in the future!!

    Wow, these are very well done this month! i really cant decide which one for my desktop background. Everyone did a good job, but these are my top pics!
    - 2010 World Cup- Probably the most appropriate!
    - Juno- nice abstract illustration
    - Flowers of June- i love gardening
    - You are unlimited- i could see that everyday!
    - Think Different- haha, nice job! inspires me to want to mess with the apple!
    - Stone blocks- creative, eye catching.

    others i liked
    - Beautiful Brazil- vacationing perhaps!
    - Boots were made for walking- different from typical wallpapers
    - Do what you want- creative
    - Freedom Flames- getting me ready for the 4th of July!
    - Bride works: skull? what does that have to do with the the concept?

    relly superb. i think these are the worlds best pics. great job smasing magazine.

  163. 194

    Love the Simplicity calendar. Have a photo that I would like to add for July but have no clue how to add a calendar. Don’t have photoshop but believe it’s a must.

  164. 195

    Au revoir! is my favorite choice. Thanks for submitting these I look forward to this every month.

  165. 196

    Maybe we should add an iPhone wallpaper size? As we can now add a wallpaper in background with the iOS4, it could be useful to have a calendar, you know, in background. Maybe useful. You know? As we can now, so why can’t we do it? Why not, I mean. Maybe. Just an idea. Ok. Well.

  166. 197

    When’s July Wallpapers coming out? Следите за большую работу!

  167. 198

    Thanks for the useful info! I would not have gotten this on my own!

  168. 199

    Awesome collection :)
    Love it
