How do you fancy giving your desktop a Sharksworld-inspired makeover this month?

Thanks to the kind (and awesome) work of one of our posters, Gerhard van der Westhuizen, we have some exclusively designed desktop wallpaper images for you to download, complete with a calendar and (most importantly) the Sharks Super Rugby fixtures for March incorporated in the design.

Gerhard is a young web designer who has agreed to help us out from time to time and if you like his work as much as we do, I’d like to encourage you to reach out to him for any design work that you need done. You can contact me via any of the usual addresses to get hold of Gerhard’s contact details.

For now, here are the links to the March wallpapers. Look out for more great Sharksworld-inspired designs from Gerhard in the near future.

  • Thx for the approval people, and there is more to come. I would like to ask for one favor thou from all you super people, and that is to send me photos you guys have of sharks players, durban or any great ocean shots so i have a bigger collection of images to work with to make the designs even more unique to The Sharks.

    Thanks again for the great response! 😳

  • by the way April’s Calendar background is starting to take shape and is looking good.

    Also do you guys just want some general Sharksworld backgrounds without the Calendar on it? As i know some people prefer a clean background.
