Quick summary ↬ Following our monthly tradition, artists and designers from across the globe challenged their creative skills and designed desktop wallpapers to welcome March. They come in versions with and without a calendar and can be downloaded for free.
We all need a little inspiration boost every now and again. Maybe your secret is to go for a walk, have a chat with a friend, or scroll through your favorite eye candy resources. Whatever it might be that helps you refuel your creative batteries, maybe our new collection of desktop wallpapers could help, too.
To bring you a regular dose of inspiring wallpapers, we started our monthly wallpapers series more than eleven years ago. Each month, artists and designers from across the globe diligently contribute their designs to it, and, well, it wasn’t any different this time around.
The wallpapers in this collection all come in versions with and without a calendar for March 2022 and can be downloaded for free. To shine a light on some of the almost forgotten designs from past editions, we also compiled a little March best-of at the end of this post. Maybe you’ll spot one of your favorites in there, too?

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.

Spring Is Coming
This March, our calendar design epitomizes the heralds of spring. Soon enough, you’ll be waking up to the singing of swallows, in a room full of sunshine, filled with the empowering smell of daffodil, the first springtime flowers. Spring is the time of rebirth and new beginnings, creativity and inspiration, self-awareness, and inner reflection. Have a budding, thriving spring! — Designed by PopArt Studio from Serbia.
We celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and that’s the inspiration behind the design. It denotes a month of prosperity with a little bit of luck in the form of lucky charm of St. Patty strewn around! — Designed by Rahul Bhattacharya from India.

It’s been almost a year since I published a wallpaper. Anyway, this is something I made just to get back in shape. And, I’ve been trying a new drawing app, Pixelmator Pro — excellent so far. Hope you like the picture! — Designed by Vlad Gerasimov from Russia.
This March, we shine the spotlight on International Women’s Day, reflecting on the achieved and highlighting the necessity for a more equal and understanding world.

“Doodles are slowly becoming my trademark, so I just had to use them to express this phrase I’m fond of recently. A bit enigmatic, philosophical. Inspiring, isn’t it?” — Designed by Marta Paderewska from Poland.
Rays of sunlight had cracked into the bear’s cave. He slowly opened one eye and caught a glimpse of nature in blossom. Is it spring already? Oh, but he is so sleepy. He doesn’t want to wake up, not just yet. So he continues dreaming about those sweet sluggish days while everything around him is blooming. — Designed by PopArt Studio from Serbia.
“As days are getting longer again and the first few flowers start to bloom, we are all waiting for Spring to finally arrive.” — Designed by Naioo from Germany.

“I’ve been designing graphic patterns lately and wanted to incorporate one of them in my wallpaper this month. The colours I applied sparked the idea to go with a party and cake theme. I figured this one would be fun for anyone who’s celebrating their birthday this month.” — Designed by Tina Eriksson from Stockholm, Sweden.
