Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: October 2010

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 45 free desktop wallpapers, created by designers across the globe. Both versions with a calendar and without a calendar can be downloaded for free.

Please notice:

* all images can be clicked 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?

So what wallpapers have we received for October 2010?

Time Intensity

“I was sorting out all my brushes in Photoshop and started playing around with loads of variations of brush strokes that I actually forgot I had. I was trying to create a cloudy hole and have a fetish with time and time traveling at the moment and it turned out to be something in between a black hole and some sort of disrupted void in the space time continuum. I liked it that much afterwards I thought I’d use it for my own desktop and then thought I’d share it on smashingmag :)” Designed by Rik Hopkinson from UK.
