Expand Your Horizons (June 2022 Desktop Wallpapers Edition)

There’s an artist in everyone. Some bring their creative ideas to life with digital tools, others capture the perfect moment with a camera or love to grab pen and paper to create little doodles or pieces of lettering. And even if you think you’re far from being an artist, well, it might just be hidden somewhere deep inside of you. So why not explore it?

For more than eleven years, our monthly wallpapers series has been the perfect opportunity to do just that: to break out of your daily routine and put your creative skills to the test. And, well, creative folks from across the globe once again took on the challenge this month and created unique and inspiring wallpapers for June 2022.

The wallpapers in this collection come in versions with and without a calendar and can be downloaded for free. As a little bonus goodie, we also compiled some designs from our wallpapers archives at the end of this post. Maybe you’ll spot one of your almost-forgotten June favorites, too? A big thank-you to everyone who shared their designs with us — this post wouldn’t exist without you!

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 through 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.

Did you know that you could get featured in our next wallpapers post, too? We are always looking for creative talent.
