As a matter of fact, we’ve discovered the best one—desktop wallpapersthat are a little more distinctive than the usual crowd.

This creativity mission has been going on for over four years now, and we are very thankful to all designers who have contributed and are still diligently contributing each month. This post features free desktop wallpapers created by artists across the globe for June 2012. Both versions with a calendar and without a calendar can be downloaded for free. It’s time to freshen up your wallpaper!
