Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: May 2008

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 since April 2008 we supply you with fresh desktop wallpapers. 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?

Desktop Wallpaper Calender: March 2008

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.

Desktop Wallpaper

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.

(Really) Stunning Desktop Wallpapers

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.
