WordPress Holiday Desktop Wallpapers

This year, we teamed up with San Francisco artist Coley Wopperer to spread some WordPress-themed holiday cheer. We thought it turned out so well, we wanted to share it with everyone as a collection of desktop wallpapers.

Sure to bring a smile to your face, even if you’re staring at spreadsheets all day. Happy holidays from all of us at Automattic!

    It’s wonderful!! Love all the colors and shapes! I just wish this was a theme–even just temporarily! I’d change up my background–or use it for the holiday blog I’m getting ready to work on…maybe next year?

  11. Matches Malone

    Just made this my desktop wallpaper. Thanks!!! Of course, I change mine almost everyday…. :)

  35. M Shodiq Mustika

    That’s beautiful, but my mini laptop’s resolution is 1024×600. Are there WP’s wallpapers for netbook?

    • MNT

      The 1024×768 version should scale down just fine (in your desktop background preferences, choose to center the image instead of stretching or “fitting” it).

    So cool that you’ve used an artist and that you choose to share it with us at this time of giving. Great image. It properly illustrates the fact that bloggers are a colourful international community using WordPress – the star…as it should be.

    I love it! What a wonderful departure from the usual red, green, white, blue images you see around this time!

  50. istoneman

    Reminds me of Disney’s classic “It’s A Small World” at Disneyland. I this desktop wallpaper until that song started repeating itself in my head. AAAAURGH!
    Seriously, it’s a pretty sweet desktop! Nice work!

  51. Dan

    Very cool, thanks and happy holidays!

  52. phylor

  55. Lisa Hill

    Great art work, nice idea, but hey! wot about the southern hemisphere, eh? There’s no snow here downunder…

  56. longshorttales

    Very cool. I might actually use this.

  57. xboxoz360

    @ Lisa Hill

    Quite true there Lisa, perhaps Santa with a Holden and ‘Roos . .?

    Or a sunset over Ayers Rock, or sunrise over the Great Barrier Reef . . .

    Or the Harbour on Boxing Day when the fleet sets sail on the Sydney to Hobart . . ?

    There are ppl on this side of the globe, remember!?

    Cheers to all . . Grant (Oz)
