Radar: Free April 2012 Calendar Wallpaper

Thumbnail April 2012 Desktop Wallpaper

This post is part of the free calendar wallpaper series. Each month I create a new wallpaper featuring the current calendar. Looking at the same image over and over again is not very stimulating. Hence having a new desktop background each month should help getting your creative juices flowing. The April 2012 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled Radar. After using a lot of lines and angles in previous wallpapers I felt it was time to go back to my loved circle for this design. The design is split into 4, representing the 4th month as well as the four seasons. The lime colour was a conscious choice to relate to Spring. Everything else is pretty much random and should be classified under ‘happy accidents’. I hope you enjoy it! + Continue Reading

Free March 2012 Desktop Wallpaper Thumbnail by Fudgegraphics

This post is part of the free calendar wallpaper series. Each month I create a new wallpaper featuring the current calendar. Looking at the same image over and over again is not very stimulating. Hence having a new desktop background each month should help getting your creative juices flowing. The March 2012 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled M. The geometric pattern was created using only the the letter M, duplicated and blended together to create the intricate composition of triangles. I didn’t want it to be too obvious though which is why I introduced a lot of white space into design. The colour green was chosen for accents, after all this is a spring wallpaper and it shouldn’t be too dark. Enjoy! + Continue Reading

Fabulous Free February 2012 Calendar Wallpaper Thumb

This post is part of the free calendar wallpaper series. Each month I create a new wallpaper featuring the current calendar. Looking at the same image over and over again is not very stimulating. Hence having a new desktop background each month should help getting your creative juices flowing. The February 2012 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled Fabulous. While most of my calendar designs are somewhat minimalistic I wanted to go even further this time round by using a very limited colour palette, subtle textures and a very basic geometric layout. It’s really difficult not to overdo it as I have a tendency to always add one more thing. I hope you like it! + Continue Reading

Hence having a new desktop background each month should help getting your creative juices flowing. The January Calendar Wallpaper is entitled Make Shit Happen (MSH). I’m not one to make new year’s resolutions often, but this time round I made one: Do more self-initiated projects. This wallpaper should be a reminder, so at least this month I won’t forget. While this design might not be suitable for office use I still hope that you enjoy it and take the message to heart: Don’t just come up with ideas, turn them into reality. Whatever you do, make sure you have fun! + Continue Reading

Flake: Free December 2011 Calendar Wallpaper

This post is part of the free calendar wallpaper series. Each month I create a new wallpaper featuring the current calendar. Looking at the same image over and over again is not very stimulating. Hence having a new desktop background each month should help getting your creative juices flowing. The Decmeber 2011 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled Flake. I suppose the inspiration behind this one isn’t hard to crack. It’s all about winter, snow & Christmas at the moment so it made sense to come up with a related design. Truth be told, the plan was to create a minimal Christmas tree, but it turned out that you can make an even nicer snowflake by copying, rotating and scaling the same tree over and over again. As a special treat this festive season there’s 2 versions of the iPad & iPhone wallpapers available, one for the lock screen, one for the home screen. If you like it then please help spread the word. + Continue Reading

I’ve always wanted to try out a minimalistic space-themed design reminiscent of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Moon. I hope you like the result. To those that have been waiting for the wallpaper I want to apologize for the delay. Enjoy!   + Continue Reading

This is a reference to October being the 10th month of the year and it’s been subtly integrated into the design. I had a lot of fun working on the texture for this wallpaper, apart from using one paper texture everything else was done entirely in Photoshop with filters. If you like it then please consider sharing it. Thanks!  + Continue Reading

Peaked: Free September 2011 Calendar Wallpaper

September 2011 Desktop Wallpaper Preview

This post is part of the free calendar wallpaper series. Each month I create a new wallpaper featuring the current calendar. Looking at the same image over and over again is not very stimulating. Hence having a new desktop background each month should help getting your creative juices flowing. The September 2011 Calendar Wallpaper is entitled “Peaked”. The inspiration behind this month’s desktop background comes from vintage film packaging such as used for polaroid. Building layer upon layer I managed to blend the colours together until I was happy with the overall saturation. It has to be said though that the outcome was by no means planned. I usually start with a blank canvas and add a few shapes until I find a layout and direction that inspires me. As always, I hope that you like it.  + Continue Reading
