Learn how to design a calendar that's both functional and inspirational. This course begins by taking a historical look at the different types of calendars. Next, author Nigel French takes you through three different projects (a wall calendar, a circular calendar, and a compact one), using both Adobe InDesign and Illustrator.
I'm Nigel French. Welcome to Designing a Calendar. In this short course we'll be using InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop, to design three very different calendars. A conventional wall calendar, a circular calendar and a compact calendar. Each of these mini projects will bring out different design challenges. We'll be working with the calendar wizard script, circular gradients and creating color palettes.
I'll show you a nifty way of making auto number text move around a circle. And how we can squeeze 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days on a single page and have our calendar still be readable, functional and attractive. By the time we finished you'll have 3 good looking calendars to help you plan your next year. Let's get started.
