Like many designers, I prefer my computer desktop to stay clean, organized, and clutter free. It’s not a place to hold files or applications, and it’s definitely not a place for a splashy, obnoxious image. Still, the desktop is a nice place to express creativity, so lets not be boring here.
Even though there are many places to get quality, free, minimalist desktop images (try Simple Desktops), I usually roll my own. If you’d like to roll the same way, feel free to download, use and abuse our Free Minimalst Desktops*.
Here’s an initial set to get started with. I’ll add more to spigotdesign.com/desktops/ as I feel moved.
Simple Blue Gradient
