The Fox Is Black » The Desktop Wallpaper Project. Nancy McCabe When I come across a well-designed pattern I tend to marvel at the time and effort that must have taken place to achieve such perfection.

One such master is Nancy McCabe, a surface designer from Chicago who runs No Ocean, a design studio that specializes in surface designs and prints.

For Nancy’s wallpaper we decided to go with her Ink Dots pattern.

Sure there are tons of places to find wallpaper on the web … but a lot of them are hard to navigate and highly disorganized. Divided into five helpful categories, with introductory descriptions and sample screenshots, here are over twenty of the best collections, communities and other resources on the web for finding excellent desktop wallpaper. User-Submitted Wallpaper Communities: InterFaceLift has a really useful system for cross-tagging wallpapers by size, category and type. You can browse their selection by most viewed, highest rated, date posted as well as by monitor size and aspect ratio as well as double and even triple-monitor. SocWall is another community dedicated specifically to “social wallpapering” – users sharing wallpaper by category and voting on one another’s submissions.
