Desktop Wallpaper Calender: March 2008

Creativity is all about being stubborn, reluctant, uncompromising or simply different. Unique ideas are becoming necessary, conformity to standards superfluous and pointless. Few weeks ago we’ve published an overview of some (really) stunning desktop wallpapers.

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. A .zip-archive with all resolutions is packed in a wallpaper-pack and is also available for free download:

Here is how Patricia described the motivation behind her work: “The meaning of this wallpaper is really simple. My life nowadays is very confusing, a very personal situation. I’m in this constant turmoil, I have to make up my mind with these two big elephants. I’m fine, but I have to decide what I want to do.”

Please notice that we respect the ideas and motivation behind artists’ work which is why we’ve given Patricia full freedom to explore her creativity and express her emotions and experience through her work. And this is also why the theme of the wallpaper weren’t anyhow influenced by us, but designed from scratch by the artist herself.

Thank you, Patricia!

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.

    Im less than impressed, i would expect better quality from SM.

    “a very special desktop wallpaper calendar for March 2008.”

    Its the same as the march from her self, this one is only in english and add a bad anti aliased logo to it, that doesnt match the colors of the overall design.

    Afraid it won’t be appearing on my desktop any time soon, I think you secretly knew you’d get a split opinion on this one but thats what art is all about you’re never going to please everyone all of the time.
