2011 Calendar Wallpapers

**Update** If you’ve down­loaded the wall­pa­pers, please down­load them again. I fixed an issue with the num­bers being misaligned.

A lot of you have been ask­ing about this year’s wall­pa­per, and I finally got around to get­ting it done. This year the full cal­en­dar is bro­ken up into 3 wall­pa­pers. Each one has 4 months and the col­ors get darker as the year pro­gresses. As expected, I went with a sim­ple design with more of a focus on the months and I’ve con­tin­ued the multi-language theme. It comes in only one size: 1920x1200. I hope you enjoy it.

Mash Creative 2011 Limited Edition Calendar

mash-creative-2011-limited-edition-calendar.jpg

Mash Cre­ative have released a 2011 ver­sion of their beau­ti­ful lim­ited edi­tion ‘min­utes’ cal­en­dar, a suc­ces­sor to last years suc­cess­ful 2010 ‘sec­onds’ cal­en­dar. This one has been printed with glow in the dark ink so you can enjoy it at any time of day.

When I posted about last years ver­sion, it stirred up a small debate about the design and func­tion of the cal­en­dar, so here’s an excerpt from Mash on their thought process:

The human race seems to be obsessed with time, it’s the one thing we never seem to have enough of. The year ‘Twenty Eleven’ (2011) is made up of five hun­dred and twenty five thou­sand, six hun­dred min­utes, that’s an aver­age of around fourty three thou­sand, eight hun­dred min­utes a month. Our cal­en­dar has been designed to be a typo­graphic rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the year, each month has been bro­ken down into min­utes which have been listed below each month name. The jum­bled title text at the top of the poster con­tin­ues the theme from last years cal­en­dar and has been influ­enced by old ana­logue flip clocks. The cal­en­dar has been printed with glow in the dark ink allow­ing the design to take on a com­pletely dif­fer­ent look at night. Using the idea of side­real time (star time) the high­lighted months glow like a con­stel­la­tion of stars.

Expertly screen printed by Bob Eight Pop — each poster has been printed in white and glow in the dark ink and printed onto high qual­ity 160gsm Raven Black Kaskad. Each poster is hand num­bered and signed by the designer.

You can grab one of these beau­ties from Counter Objects.

Dan Reisinger

Dan Reisinger is an Israeli graphic designer who’s work includes posters, cal­en­dars, logos, cor­po­rate and envi­ron­men­tal day. He’s prob­a­bly most known for his work for EL AL Air­lines, which includes a beau­ti­ful series of des­ti­na­tion posters that were designed from 1968 – 72.

I love his style and his work is prob­a­bly the only exam­ple I’ve ever seen of good design that uses Hebrew letters.

Reisinger also designed this lovely per­pet­ual cal­en­dar for MoMA in 1987.

Limited Edition 2010 Letterpress Calendar

limited-edition-2010-letterpress-calendar

I have a thing for well-designed cal­en­dars and let­ter­press print­ing, so this year I tried to com­bine the two into a sin­gle project.

Now avail­able to order is this Lim­ited Edi­tion 2010 Let­ter­press Cal­en­dar. The print fea­tures a cal­en­dar with the year printed in Eng­lish, Ital­ian, French and Ger­man. The 2010, the days of the week, and the edi­tion num­ber line are all printed blind, and of course, the type is set in Hel­vetica. Each print is num­bered and signed.

The size of the cal­en­dar is 16.5″ x 23.5″ (A2) and printed on Crane Let­tra Flu­o­res­cent White 110# (300gsm) paper, which is spe­cially made for let­ter­press. The qual­ity of the paper is superb and gives the print an extra spe­cial feel to it.

The print­ing was done by the fab­u­lous Coeur Noir of Brook­lyn, NY. I used these guys for my son’s bap­tism invites and they also printed all the Hel­vetica Film posters, as well as the Objec­ti­fied poster. They sim­ply rock.

This run is very lim­ited, only 50 prints were made, so order one now for $70. You can check out more detailed pho­tos here.

If you’re look­ing for an afford­able fram­ing option, I rec­om­mend pick­ing up a good-looking, but inex­pen­sive, IKEA Ribba Frame (19.75″ x 27.5″) and have a cus­tom matte cut to fit it. This setup will run you less than $50.

If you ask him nice enough he might send you a copy.        

2010 Calendar Wallpaper

I’ve been work­ing on a 2010 cal­en­dar poster that I plan to have let­ter­pressed and fig­ured that it would also work well as a wall­pa­per. So I put some wall­pa­pers together based on the poster design that fea­tures a 2010 cal­en­dar and the year writ­ten out in Eng­lish, Ital­ian, French and Ger­man. Avail­able in pink and white at 1920x1200.
