Come Rain Or Come Shine: Inspiring Wallpapers For September 2018




Come Rain Or Come Shine: Inspiring Wallpapers For September 2018

Cosima Mielke



September is a time of transition. While some are trying to conserve the summer feeling just a bit longer, others are eager for fall to come with its colorful leaves and rainy days. But no matter how you feel about September or what the new month might be bringing along, this wallpaper collection sure has something to inspire you.

Just like every month since more than nine years already, artists and designers from across the globe once again challenged their creative skills and designed wallpapers to help you break out of your routine and give your desktop a fresh makeover. Each one of them comes in versions with and without a calendar for September 2018 and can be downloaded for free.

As a little extra goodie, we also went through our archives on the look for some timeless September wallpaper treasures which you’ll find assembled at the end of this post. Please note that these oldies, thus, don’t come with a calendar. Happy September!

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?

Summer Is Not Over Yet

“This is our way of asking the summer not to go away. We were inspired by travel and exotic islands. In fact, it seems that September was the seventh month in the Roman calendar, dedicated to Vulcan, a god of fire. The legend has it that he was the son of Jupiter and Juno, and being an ugly baby with a limp, his mother tried to push him off a cliff into a volcano. Not really a nice story, but that’s where the tale took us. Anyway, enjoy September — because summer’s not over yet!” — Designed by PopArt Studio from Novi Sad, Serbia.

Summer Is Not Over Yet

Summer Collapsed Into Fall

“The lands are painted gold lit with autumn blaze. And all at once the leaves of the trees started falling, but none of them are worried. Since, everyone falls in love with fall.” — Designed by Mindster from India.

Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

“They say ‘patience is a virtue’, and so great opportunities and opulence in life come to those who are patient. Here we depicted a snail in the visual, one which longs to seize the shine that comes its way. It goes by the same watchword, shows no impulsiveness and waits for the right chances.” — Designed by Sweans from London.

From The Archives

Some things are too good to be forgotten and our wallpaper archives are full of timeless treasures. So here’s a small selection of favorites from past September editions. Please note that these don’t come with a calendar.

Autumn Rains

“This autumn, we expect to see a lot of rainy days and blues, so we wanted to change the paradigm and wish a warm welcome to the new season. After all, if you come to think of it: rain is not so bad if you have an umbrella and a raincoat. Come autumn, we welcome you!” — Designed by PopArt Studio from Serbia.

Autumn Rains

Maryland Pride

“As summer comes to a close, so does the end of blue crab season in Maryland. Blue crabs have been a regional delicacy since the 1700s and have become Maryland’s most valuable fishing industry, adding millions of dollars to the Maryland economy each year. With more than 455 million blue crabs swimming in the Chesapeake Bay, these tasty critters can be prepared in a variety of ways and have become a summer staple in many homes and restaurants across the state. The blue crab has contributed so much to the state’s regional culture and economy, in 1989 it was named the State Crustacean, cementing its importance in Maryland history.” — Designed by The Hannon Group from Washington DC.

Maryland Pride

Summer Is Leaving

“It is inevitable. Summer is leaving silently. Let us think of ways to make the most of what is left of the beloved season.” — Designed by Bootstrap Dashboards from India.

Summer Is Leaving

Early Autumn

“September is usually considered as early autumn so I decided to draw some trees and leaves. However, nobody likes that summer is coming to an end, that’s why I kept summerish colours and style.” — Designed by Kat Gluszek from Germany.

Early Autumn

Long Live Summer

“While September’s Autumnal Equinox technically signifies the end of the summer season, this wallpaper is for all those summer lovers, like me, who don’t want the sunshine, warm weather and lazy days to end.” — Designed by Vicki Grunewald from Washington.

Long Live Summer

Listen Closer… The Mushrooms Are Growing…

“It’s this time of the year when children go to school and grown-ups go to collect mushrooms.” — Designed by Igor Izhik from Canada.

Many different bulbs have been featured by interior designers including vintage bulbs, and oddly shaped energy-saving bulbs. We captured the personality of a variety of different bulbs in this wallpaper featuring the Bulb family.” — Designed by Carla Genovesio from the USA.

Meet the Bulbs!

World Bat Night

“In the night from September 20th to 21st, the world has one of the most unusual environmental events — Night of the bats. Its main purpose: to draw public attention to the problems of bats and their protection, as well as to debunk the myths surrounding the animals, as many people experience unjustified superstitious fear, considering them vampires.” — Designed by cheloveche.ru from Russia.

Oldies But Goodies

The past nine years have brought forth lots of inspiring wallpapers, and, well, it’d be a pity to let them gather dust somewhere down in the archives. That’s why we once again dug out some goodies from past August editions that are bound to make a great fit on your desktop still today. Please note that these wallpapers, thus, don’t come with a calendar.

Happiness Happens In August

“Many people find August one of the happiest months of the year because of holidays.

Psst, It’s Camping Time...

Bee Happy!

A Bloom Of Jellyfish

“I love going to aquariums – the colours, patterns and array of blue hues attract the nature lover in me while still appeasing my design eye. One of the highlights is always the jellyfish tanks. They usually have some kind of light show in them, which makes the jellyfish fade from an intense magenta to a deep purple – and it literally tickles me pink. On a recent trip to uShaka Marine World, we discovered that the collective noun for jellyfish is a bloom and, well, it was love-at-first-collective-noun all over again. I’ve used some intense colours to warm up your desktop and hopefully transport you into the depths of your own aquarium.” — Designed by Wonderland Collective from South Africa.

We all need a little inspiration boost every once in a while. And, well, whatever your strategy to get your creative juices flowing might be, sometimes inspiration lies closer than you think. As close as your desktop even.

Since more than nine years, we’ve been asking the design community to create monthly desktop wallpaper calendars. Wallpapers that are a bit more distinctive as what you’ll usually find out there, bound to cater for a little in-between inspiration spark. Of course, it wasn’t any different this time around.
