Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: November 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 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 50 free desktop wallpapers, created by designers across the globe and sent to us by the designers themselves. Both versions with a calendar and without a calendar can be downloaded and used 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 November?

It’s always polished, always tempting to take for a harmless drive and triggers a combination of nostalgia for those sexy cars of Cuba with a large tot of industrial design.” Created by Steven Clark3431 from Hobart, Tasmania.

There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o’er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

I had a lot of fun putting this wallpaper together. It’s all vector illustration in Illustrator. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.” Designed by Michelle Cormack108 from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

I think that fall is different from autumn in that the leaves are actually “falling” from the tree.

Geometric tribute to Guy Link

“The design is loosely based around Guy Fawkes night (November 5th) and the many firework displays that are part and parcel of the evenings’ celebrations. I was interested by the inherent beauty of fireworks and the way in which they explode, hence the abstract, geometric style of the imagery. I opted for a warm colour palette to give the wallpaper a sense of cosiness, a feeling I recall from many ‘Bonfire nights’ of my youth.” Designed by Mark Kirwan from the art agency Persona, England.

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 November we’ll receive as many entries as in October. Join in next month138 and smashing November, folks!

    I really think this time’s line-up wasn’t even close to October’s in terms of quality. I see two different colored versions of a rounded vector-ish tutorial result and a couple of other things that are just overdone and gone for good already.

    But I do appreciate the urge to contribute from the same.

    I really love C’est Une Femme, Creative Design and more though. Nice walls.

    I’m gonna get some in for December. About time.

    A couple of good entries, like “The Vigil” from Alex Beltechi (I’m biased, I know, I’m his brother) and “C’est une femme!” by Patricia Montero de Cabana, but the order is at least strange. Maybe the best entries should have been at the top.
