Change up that boring desktop wallpaper!

Change up that boring desktop wallpaper!

We don’t tend to post design related content here but as a designer I’m hoping to change that!

I wanted to mention a great monthly feature of one of my favorite design websites Smashing Magazine. The website, which is aimed at web designers and developers, has a monthly wallpaper series that seeks to offer creative wallpapers to spark the imagination and inspire.

If your like me your constantly searching for things in the world around you to inspire your designs and bring fresh perspectives to what your working on. Given how many hours a day your in front of your computer I feel that your desktop wallpaper shouldn’t be something that you overlook.

Check out Smashing Magazine’s July wallpapers – all are submitted to the site by the community and include a version with and without the current month’s calendar worked into the design. Fill out this form if your interested in submitting your design to the series.
