For September, I was inspired by the work of Andy Gilmore and created this months wallpaper around the geometric styling of his work.
For the colour scheme, I was looking for a wide spectrum of colours, but was initially looking for neon-like colours for a modern touch – but the cover of my Blade Runner DVD caught my eye, and so I sampled the yellows, blues, reds and oranges from that. Whilst overlaying black horizontal and vertical stripes it created a darker spectrum of colours, so I used brighter colours for the dates.

The font I chose is called Neighbourhood by Andy Chung.
I am very proud that Smashing Magazine chose my design again this month – see their extensive September 2009 wallpapers. As an exclusive for this site, I have created an iPhone specific wallpaper with no calendar:
