Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: October 2008

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 magazine1 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 October?

Good Morning Sunshine Link

“This is the fruit of my original creative brainstorming sessions trying to come up with fun and interesting elements to dress up my blog, which is a variation of the popular Fresh News theme.

Several formats available for download and even more available at my little blog if you're interested.” Designed by Brandon R Jones112 from Southern California, United States.

Noodle Soup and a grilled cheese sandwich Link

“October is the month when we start to notice the change of season. The weather is changing and we often get sick and appreciate staying home.

London Sky through the London Eye Link

“This photo was taken while I was back home in England last month. It was a great day and the colour of the sky was fantastic. I loved how the viewpoint turned out. You won’t tell from the photo but it was very crowded that day and it was difficult to get good photos – I loved this one though. I used my Canon Powershot G9 for this photo.” Created by Haitham Ali123 from London, England.

Halloscene Link

“Halloscene is a vector illustration. A full moon, a webby fence, orange and black could only mean one thing… The motivation behind the design: Halloween has been my favorite holiday since I was a kid. I wanted to do something that really said Halloween, without going the (too) obvious route. I tend to go for these kinds of clean, limited palette illustrations.” Designed by Leslie Tane Design151 from the USA.

That 60’s Halloween Link

“We came out with the idea barely out of nowhere. We are two design studios from Buenos Aires, Argentina that are merging together into an interactive agency and wanted to create a creative piece to celebrate Halloween and the end of our old companies. The figure of Marilyn Monroe came out of a joke (a very bad one) and we integrated it somehow to the Halloween theme. The illustration was done by Alan Akerman and the artwork by Fernando Maclen154.”

Siva Link

“Siva is the Hindu god of destruction. Siva is also considered the god of the yogis and ascetics. He is the embodiment of serenity, renunciation and indifference to the world. Motivation: Besides doing web designs I’m also a yoga teacher and avid practitioner – I designed the Siva because of those interests.” Designed by Anne Douglas210 from the USA.

Smashing Wallpaper - October 2008211

Ichabod Crane Link

“Being October, my wallpaper is a theme based on the character Ichabod Crane, form the Legend of Sleepy Hollow. This is the time of year for spooks and things that go bump in the night. So when I was painting a local covered bridge -it wasn’t too hard to imagine my character, “clopping” along after dusk.” Created by Brian D. Payne221 from the USA.

“Third version of the miscellaneous days calendar – for October it’s brighter and greener (though October won’t be) and the boxes are gone: I think it’s more likely to loosely group your desktop items around the days you plan to be working on them.

Orange Bus Link

“The old Volkswagen Split Screens looks superb, and placed in a slick looking environment — it really stands out the way it deserves. I love using old (vintage) items combined with new (modern) designs. It uses my all time favourite colour combo, orange and blue. However, the blue background is quite “de-saturated”, so it won’t interfere with the colour of people’s Photoshop documents. I hope everyone who loves VW camper vans and surfing will download this calendar.” Designed by Torunn Seim Skrogstad from Newcastle, United Kingdom.

Join in next month! Link

Please notice that we respect the ideas and motivation behind artists’ work which is why we’ve given artists full freedom to explore their creativity and express emotions and experience through their works. And this is also why the themes of the wallpapers weren’t anyhow influenced by us, but designed from scratch by the artists themselves.

Thanks to all designers for participation. Hopefully, in October we’ll receive as many entries as in September. Join in next month277 and smashing October, folks!

    Just thought I would mention that “Happy Designer” will not work to well as a calendar… the 1st of October is not a Monday… and I’m fairly certain that there are actually 31 days in the month as well =)

    Ok, so thanks to everyone who submitted but we seem to be getting more and more problems each month with things like wrong dates, plus people aren’t happy with all the specified resolutions. Don’t you think it would be a good idea to kick the whole competition off again, or at least re-post the instructions? That way people will be reminded about it and how to enter.. PROPERLY.

    @cameronqueen: all guidelines are linked in each post and are mentioned here: https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2008/03/19/desktop-wallpaper-calendar-join-in/ The “competition” will end in February 2009 anyway, so it’s not that much time to wait. ;-)
