Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: February 2013

Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: February 2013

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 February 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?

A Lost Woman.

“Instead of going with something happy and loving, I decided to make a wallpaper for those who have lost an important woman.

I believe all men have that one girl they loved with all their heart but could never conquer.” — Designed by Maarten Van Isterdael from Belgium.

Every Day Should Be Valentine’s Day

“Valentine’s Day is a big business today. I personally don’t celebrate it, because I think if you love someone every day should be Valentine’s Day. :) That’s what this wallpaper is all about.
