I spend at least half of my day on the computer. Whether I’m answering emails, taking notes during officer meetings, writing workshops or practicing presentations, it all happens on my laptop. I’ve searched the web high and low for websites to find stylish wallpaper designs. My favorite site for free desktop downloads is designlovefest. Art Director, Bri Emery, curates a weekly series called Dress Your Tech where a new artist or designer creates a collection of a desktop wallpapers. The designs range in style, but I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite wallpapers based on the type of design. Click on each picture below to go to the original post with the full-size download.
I love how artists create these desktop wallpapers based on what kind of art they do professionally. You can really see the acrylic and watercolor texture of these two examples. The artwork designs make my desktop feel like a piece of art, even when I have 10 windows of work items open.
During busy or stressful weeks, I switch my wallpaper to a quote to get me in a motivated mindset. The first quote, “Compete with yourself, not with others,” is from #GIRLBOSS author, Sofia Amoruso. Beyonce’s “I woke up like this” quote will just never get old for me and makes me feel like I can conquer the world.
These retro and funky sunglasses simply make me smile. They make me dream of putting on my swimsuit and going to the beach. The gold foil “hustle” design makes me want to get work done, in style. #EverydayImHustlin
Sometimes a clean, simple wallpaper can make you feel the most organized. The last wallpaper design speaks for itself. We can accomplish a lot of work everyday, “but first, coffee.”
I could search through the Dress Your Tech archives for hours. Scroll through the pages of designs to find more favorites. They can also be downloaded for your phone wallpaper. Hope these add a little flair to your technology!
