Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Designer calendars, part of Designing a Calendar.
To kick start my own creative process, I've made a…Pinterest board of what I think are well designed calendars.…If you're a Pinterest user you can find me on Pinterest and view my board.…There are examples of calendars designed by famous graphic designers…like Wim Crouwel Massimo…Vignelli And Paula Scher. Of course the examples I have…chosen to pin are but a fraction of what's out there and reflect my personal tastes.…
Looking through these examples I find several…themes that stand out, there's the bold use…of typography either in a minimalist sans serif style, or a more playful slab serif…letterpress style. There's the prominent use of numerals.…In some examples the type of numerals are so…large and so graphical, that they tend towards abstraction.…There's the strong use of color, and…in particular color coding to signify the seasons.…
There's an abundance of circular calendars,…emphasizing the cyclical nature of time.…These then are some…of the elements I want to try…and incorporate when designing my own calendar.…
