Make A Wish

We always try our best to challenge your creativity and get you out of your comfort zone. In all these years we’ve been running it, our monthly wallpapers series has turned out to be the perfect occasion to do just that: to put your creative skills to the test, try out a new technique you haven’t tried before, tell a story that matters to you, or indulge in a little project just for fun. And well, the wallpaper submissions that reach us every month, always make for a unique collection of community artworks, ready to adorn desktop and mobile screens. It wasn’t any different this time around.

Created with love by designers and artists from across the globe, the wallpapers in this collection all come in versions with and without a calendar for May 2022. As a little bonus goodie, we also compiled some favorites from past May editions at the end of this post. Thank you to everyone who took on the challenge and shared their wallpapers with us — you’re smashing!

  • You can click on every image to see a larger preview,
  • 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.

Kira #

“On April 23, in Odesa, a random Russian missile killed three-month-old Kira Glodan, her mother Valerie and grandmother, destroying their home while her father was out buying products. During war, many such tragedies happen, sometimes every day. And many of these tragedies do not hit the media. Still, I felt I had to respond, it is the least I can do — help spread the word. War, please stop.” — Designed by Vlad Gerasimov from Georgia.

Hello May #

“The longing for warmth, flowers in bloom, and new beginnings are finally over as we welcome the month of May. From celebrating nature on the days of turtles and birds to marking the days of our favorite wine and macarons, the historical celebrations of International Workers’ Day, Cinco de Mayo, and Victory Day, to the unforgettable ‘May the Fourth be with you. May is a time of celebration — so make every May day count!” — Designed by PopArt Studio from Serbia.

The Impenetrable Wall Of Love #

“I was trying to draw a simple picture, with people made of cardboard. But I guess my thoughts of war leak through. War, please stop.” — Designed by Vlad Gerasimov from Georgia.

“In spring, especially in May, we all want bright colors and lightness, which was not there in winter. Our designers decided to convey these feelings in the May calendar. We have collected more variety of calendars here. They are free to download. :)” — Designed by MasterBundles from Ukraine.
