Daydreaming In March (2023 Wallpapers Edition)

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 listen to your favorite playlist. Whatever it might be that refuels your creative batteries, our new collection of desktop and mobile 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 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 2023 and can be downloaded for free. As a little bonus goodie, we also compiled some March favorites from our wallpapers archives at the end of this post. Maybe you’ll spot one of your almost-forgotten favorites in there, too? A big thank-you to everyone who submitted their wallpaper designs this month — this post wouldn’t exist without you!

  • 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.
