Desktop Wallpaper Calendars: July 2013

Advertisement

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 five years now, and we are very thankful to all the designers who have contributed and are still diligently contributing each month. This post features free desktop wallpapers created by artists across the globe for July 2013. 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?

    Nice set, liking the Mason Jar.

    To answer the question on the Wimbledon 2013 RF design — that would be a resounding no!

    I admire the work of art every calendar has its own artistic touch. I like nearly all of the above but categorizing according to my personal taste is “Love is caring” & “Cute Birds”. And you are good at providing creative resource specially from my field design & printing.

    Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, but I am not at all excited about this month’s collection. I usually look forward to passing these around the office every month and I feel like lately it’s all the same people with the same recycled color palates and themes. A couple that stood out for me, but mostly I’m looking forward to August now.
