Every designer is influenced by the great artists and movements that came before them. The psychedelic posters of the ‘60s drew from Art Nouveau. Punk rock followed in the footsteps of Dada. Today’s retro design trends reference everything from antique labels to early ‘90s patterns.
So what (or who) influences your style? And how do you make that style your own? For this Community Contest, we want you to pay tribute to your biggest creative influence by creating a unique desktop wallpaper illustration.
We’ll share the winning wallpapers with our entire community (both clients and designers) to inspire their next creative project and showcase your amazing work.
All winning designers will be required to create both a desktop and mobile version of their design during handover, as well as submit a print-ready version of their illustration.

Let your creative influence be your guide!
If they’re a person, consider incorporating a quote or reference to who they are. If it’s an art movement, make the movement’s name the focal point of your design, blend it in subtly or let the style speak for itself. But it’s really up to you! We want this to be a fun one :-)
** Please Note: We are NOT looking for recreations of famous artwork. We want to see you create something new and unique in the style of your biggest influence.
