35 High Def Wallpapers to Calm and Inspire You

Your computer’s wallpaper can actually have quite a drastic effect upon your productivity and creativity. I will consciously notice changes in my mood when I change my desktop. As a result, I will often select a desktop that helps me achieve my goals for the week.

Think about how your wallpaper makes you feel. Calm? Angry? Bored? Creative? Impressed?

I’ve compiled 35 truly stunning high definition wallpapers to calm and inspire you in your daily work. These wallpapers all display a tremendous level of creativity, and often depict a serene, calming landscape. Better yet, each wallpaper is at least 1600X1200px, to hopefully suit any designers desktop. I encourage you to download a few of your favorites and see the difference that they can have on your workflow. I tend to work at my best when I’m feeling calm, and often feel inspired by beauty in the natural world, or in some abstract art-form.

Don’t forget to check out the awesome wallpaper-creation tutorials at the base of this post!
