Freshen up your Desktop with these Creative Wallpapers

by Matthew Heidenreich

July 9, 2010 in design Inspiration

Unlike your average computer user, those with a creative profession would enjoy looking at something other than a portrait of their family all day.  Having a wallpaper, or background, that stands out from the rest can give you a fresh perspective to help your imagination conjure up the idea you were looking for.  This is why I have created a collection of beautiful and creative wallpapers to freshen up your desktop.
