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 six years now, and we are very thankful to all designers who have contributed and are still diligently contributing each month.
This post features free desktop wallpapers created by artists across the globe for September 2014. 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 Calendars series. We are regularly looking for creative designers and artists to be featured on Smashing Magazine. Are you one of them?

Elephant In The Room
“I was inspired by Elephant Appreciation Day, which everyone knows is September 22nd.” — Designed by Rosemary Ivosevich from Philadelphia, PA.
“September means a lot of things. If you are into marketing, it is a big month. Not only for back-to-school sales but also for planning ahead for Christmas. Of course this brings both developers, designers and copywriters into the grind. With all this work piling up on top of us we try to keep our cool and relax whenever we can. After all, taking appropriate breaks is very important for productivity. This calming photo was snapped during my trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles back in 2013. It was a hellish week, full of meetings and travel, sometimes 28 hours at a time. But being able to stop, take a breath of fresh air and appreciate the beauty that is around us kept me and my co-founders healthy, happy and sane. I hope it will do the same for you.” — Designed by Dmitri Tcherbadji from Canada.
Green Grass Of The Vosges
“The Vosges are mountains in the east of France. In september it’s still possible to enjoy the green grass of the grazing land, more often at the top of the moutains. Summer is not closed, yet!” — Designed by Philippe Brouard from France.
“No matter where in the world you are, this calendar will bring some autumn cheer to your device backgrounds!” — Designed by Rachel Litzinger from Chiang Rai, Thailand.

“September is a month to start over again and say good bye to the summer and vacations. That’s why we want to say good bye to the sun who will travel from north to south this time of the year.” — Designed by Colorsfera from Spain.
Designed by Luc Versleijen from the Netherlands.

Please note that we respect and carefully consider the ideas and motivation behind each and every artist’s work. This is why we give all artists the full freedom to explore their creativity and express emotions and experience throughout their works. This is also why the themes of the wallpapers weren’t anyhow influenced by us, but rather designed from scratch by the artists themselves.
A big thank you to all designers for their participation. Join in next month!
