Cycling Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: August 2009

I actually struggled with a design this month and am not sure it turned out as good as it could have. Most cyclists will recognize the UCI World Champion rainbow color bars. Those mirror the design of my new header but are also there simply to add some color to the wallpaper. The rider in the background is Dave Zabriskie. He hasn’t won a UCI World Championship but I wanted a time trial pic in the wallpaper this month and I liked the angle the shot was taken. Maybe DZ will get that elusive TT World Champions jersey soon. Resolution is...

Cycling Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: July 2009

With July comes the biggest professional bike race of the season. The Tour de France. How could I not design a desktop wallpaper that doesn’t pay tribute to this great race. Instead of profiling pics/names of individual cyclists I decided to go with the classic images from past tours which includes fields of sunflowers and El Diablo. The size of the image is...

Cycling Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: May 2009

Ok, it’s the end of the month and time for the second installment of the Cycling Desktop Wallpaper Calendar. April’s wallpaper calendar focused on the Spring Classics in cycling and May’s subject with focus on a race as well. The 2009 Giro d’Italia. I went with a more minimalist design this time to keep it simple. I left plenty of white space over on the left for you to place icons in if you want. The resolution is 1024×768. I can look at other resolutions if there is a demand. As always, please let me know what you think. Good or bad.

Cycling Desktop Wallpaper Calendar: April 2009

I decided to try something a little new and put together a Cycling Desktop Wallpaper Calendar. I got the inspiration from over at Smashing Magazine where graphic artists each month submit desktop wallpaper calendars for users to set as their desktop backgrounds. All of them are awesome but they rarely contain graphics or subjects that interest me. That said, I thought I would create my own using my meager photoshop skills. Below is the cycling desktop wallpaper calendar I created for April 2009. April is the month of the Spring Cycling Classics so I focused the wallpapers theme around that. To the left of the calendar is this years dates for each of the cobbled and Ardennes races that make up the spring classics. If you have suggestions, like it, would like to see future months, or hate it, please leave a comment below. The wallpaper’s size is 1024×768 because that’s what I use on my laptop. If there’s enough interest I’ll make some other sizes. Just click on the picture to get the full size.
