Smashing Magazine, an online (and independent) publication focused on web designers and developers, and the design community, has released 35 really neat desktop wallpapers for January 2010. A calendar is embedded into each of the wallpapers.

These wallpapers were created by designers all across the world. Smashing Magazine features a quote from designer on how they created their wallpaper in their post. They plan to post wallpapers by designers for each month.

Fellow Microsoftie (and fan of Smashing Magazine) Tim Heuer decided to take those 35 wallpapers and create a Windows 7 theme for everyone to download and install on their Windows 7 PCs!
