Cheerful Desktop Wallpapers To Kick Off June (2018 Edition)




Cheerful Desktop Wallpapers To Kick Off June (2018 Edition)

Cosima Mielke



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.

This post features wallpapers for June 2018. All of them come in versions with and without a calendar, so it’s up to you to decide if you want to have the month at a glance or keep things simple. As a bonus goodie, we also collected some timeless June favorites from past years for this edition (please note that they thus don’t come with a calendar). A big thank-you to all the artists who have submitted their wallpapers and are still diligently continuing to do so. It’s time to freshen up your desktop!

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?

Travel Time

“June is our favorite time of the year because the keenly anticipated sunny weather inspires us to travel. Stuck at the airport, waiting for our flight but still excited about wayfaring, we often start dreaming about the new places we are going to visit. Where will you travel to this summer? Wherever you go, we wish you a pleasant journey!” — Designed by PopArt Studio from Serbia.
