Desktop Wallpaper Calendars: February 2012


We always try our best to challenge your artistic abilities and produce some interesting, beautiful and creative artwork. And as designers we usually turn to different sources of inspiration. As a matter of fact, we’ve discovered the best one — desktop wallpapers that are a little more distinctive than the usual crowd. This creativity mission has been going on for over two years now, and we are very thankful to all designers who have contributed and are still diligently contributing each month.

We continue to nourish you with a monthly spoon of inspiration. This post features free desktop wallpapers created by artists across the globe for February 2012. Both versions with a calendar and without a calendar can be downloaded for free. It’s time to freshen up your wallpaper!

Please note that:

  • All images can be clicked on and lead to the preview of the wallpaper,
  • You can feature your work in our magazine 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?

    “Load Time”……if I didn’t love the web, I would actually find that statement disheartening. It’s so true though.

  2. 2

    All you need is Love and SmashMag :)

  3. 3

    All You Need Is Love, Penguin Hockey, and Heartbroken are my favorites! :D

  6. 6

    My favorite “Be Mine”

  7. 7

    Nice choices, well illustrated, especially Hungry Owl, Heartbroken, and Shadow’s Chance; Load Time is apropos, and I like Colored Edge.

  8. 8

    I liked heart on a string and ice melted only… out of the rest.

  11. 11

    Not to knock free stuff, but “Kids and Dragon” has a typo. (Unless it’s an allusion to something.) Vebruary?

  12. 12

    My favorite is “The Shortest Month.” Loving the fellow redhead ;)

  13. 13

    Ok, so how many did you have to reject becuase they didn’t include February 29?

  14. 14

    I like “Kids and Dragon”. Are there dragons in Estonia?

  15. 15

    I loved the owl!!
    I put it on my wallpaper in the new month!!

  16. 16

    “Be Mine” takes it hands down. I love the Simplicity behind it. It is very symbolic, clean and touching! Love to see more of that caliber!

  17. 17

    Winter Church is my pick for this month.

  18. 18

    “A Shadow’s Chance” this one is really good !!!

    Honestly, that can be the best SM wallpapers ever. Love works ;)

  21. 21

    Wow! Really nice collection this month! :)
    Rahul, you just made my February warmer with your beautiful and colorful wallpaper! It even makes me want to work more! :)
    Thanks a lot!

  22. 22

    Hell no, it’s all wrong. I used to think in such a way too, but then I’ve checked on hahaped – it appears that everything is different…

  23. 23

    Nice collection.I love Penguin Hockey.

  24. 24

    First of all: I look forward to changing my wallpaper every month, thanks to you guys. As for my favorite this month: overall, I was partial to calendars that placed a heart on the 14th. Having narrowed it down to that point, I chose the heart on a string. Love the richness of the background color and the whimsical drawing style. Also want to give a shout out to the groundhog one. If I wasn’t in such a romantic mood, I would have gone that route. Thanks so much for this feature!!

  25. 25

    I like these

    A Shadow’s Chance

  26. 26

    Yay! I LOVE that dragon. And I love all the LOVE this month! Thank you, creative creatures, you add colour to my world. Still scorching hot for us in sunny SA in Feb too. Life’s grand =)

  27. 27

    I was hesitant between Penguin Hockey and Heartbroken since I like both, but as a hockey fan I had to go with the first of the two. Thanks to all the designers for submitting these!

  28. 28

    Be Mine, definitely!! Simple yet elegant, perfect colours for the month… (Who wants to think of COLD dreary stuff?)
    Love the tree! well done!!

  29. 29

    my favorite is “all you need is love” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you!!!

  30. 30

    I love ‘Winter Church’ ‘Load Time’ and ‘Colored Edge’ the best this month :)
