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 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.
