Hey folks, I’m back from vacay. I hope everyone had a safe and happy holidays.
We’ll kick off the new year with This Studio’s 2014 calendar. I always look forward to this calendar, and this edition doesn’t disappoint. It’s the 7th edition printed with Pantone 102U on 90gsm uncoated paper, size A1. Grab a copy.
The Circular Calendar is designed by German designer, Sören Lachnit, and features a yellow form in the middle of the calendar that represents the possible sun hours fifty degrees north of the equator. It also includes the phases of the moon, the solstices, and space for notes.
Printing technology: Offset print
Paper: Printed on 170g/m² silk finish paper
Dimensions: 841 mm x 1189 mm (33.11 x 46.81 inches)
**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: 1920×1200. I hope you enjoy it.
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.
