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've decided to supply you with smashing wallpapers over the next 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 15 free desktop wallpapers, designed by 15 designers across the globe. Both versions with a calendar and without a calendar can be downloaded for free.
So what wallpapers have we received for April? Do you also think that there's just not enough pink pandas on computer wallpapers out there?Read more...
In December 2010, we presented a number of desktop wallpapers that covered the highlights of 2010 — desktop wallpapers designed by various artists from all over the globe. It would be our pleasure, dear readers, for you to share your artworks with all of us and heartily welcome you to join in the monthly wallpaper submissions on Smashing Magazine!
A desktop wallpaper from our recent selection.
The wallpapers will be published in the beginning of every month for the next 12 months. Notice that we respect the ideas and motivation behind artists’ work which is why we give you the full freedom to explore your creativity through your work. And this is also why the theme of the wallpaper isn’t anyhow influenced by us, but designed from scratch by yourself.Read more...
Free stuff always comes in handy. Particularly if it offers a high quality one would usually expect from a quite costly commercial product. The latter holds particularly when it comes to typefaces and icon packs. On the other hand, when you are looking for some excellent desktop wallpapers to spark your creativity, it's just damn hard to find the good ones. Well, not any longer.
Below you'll find some excellent friday freebies — a high-quality font, high-resolution wallpapers and icons as well as a free WordPress admin theme. If you have any further suggestions please don't hesitate to share them in the comments.

Creativity is all about being stubborn, reluctant, uncompromising or simply different. Unique ideas are becoming necessary, conformity to standards superflous and pointless. Few weeks ago we've published an overview of some (really) stunning desktop wallpapers. Researching for some excellent wallpapers, we've stumbled upon Patricia Villanueva's weblog with her sometimes bold, sometimes intriguing, sometimes crazy, but always creative, unusual and incredibly personal works.
That's why we've contacted Patricia, a 29-year-old graphics designer from Mexico-City, and asked her to create English versions of her monthly desktop wallpapers for Smashing Magazine. Patricia agreed. Result: a very special desktop wallpaper calendar for March 2008.
You can download the wallpaper in 4 widescreen resolutions: 1920×1200, 1680×1050, 1440×900, 1280x800. A .zip-archive with all resolutions is also packed in a wallpaper-pack and is available for free download.
Please notice: we are regularly looking for creative designers and artists to be featured on Smashing Magazine. You don't know it yet, but your work may be featured in one of our upcoming posts.Read more...
Desktop wallpapers always come in handy. The more inspirational, beautiful and elegant they are, the better they can challenge our imagination and provide some fresh perspective in a rather tedious and monotonous workflow. However, desktop wallpapers sometimes can go far beyond offering colorful eye-candy; sometimes desktop wallpapers include calendars, funny cartoons and logos of favourite tools, services and companies. The latter is particularly true for Apple-fans and Microsoft-haters as well as for Google, Twitter and Firefox-users.
In this post we present stunning desktop wallpapers related to typography, art, technology, photography and abstract themes. Among other things we review calendar wallpapers, minimalistic wallpapers, wallpapers-illustrations and themes for Apple, Microsoft, Twitter and Google-fans. Each of the links leads to huge wallpapers archives where you can find even more excellent wallpapers. All screenshots are clickable and lead to the pages where they can be downloaded.
