Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Styles of calendar design, part of Designing a Calendar.
Our discussion of the different types of calendar not withstanding, I am going to…be designing a calendar for the year 2014 based on the Gregorian calender.…It will have 365 days.…2014 is not leap year, 12 months and 52 weeks, and…I am going to be doing so in three distinctly different styles.…Firstly, I'll be designing a wall calendar that can…hang on a hook or nail.…There will be a vertical spread with a full…page picture at top and the month laid out below.…
The pictures will be organized around a theme.…Secondly, I'll be designing a compact calendar where…the year is laid out on a single page.…Given how much information needs to fit into…a limited space, this will be purely typographic,…i.e.…Entirely without imagery or with very limited imagery.…And with all elements reduced and simplified as much as possible.…And thirdly, I'll be designing a more abstract calendar.…
In this case, in a circular format.…Where again, the whole year is laid out on a single side.…But this version will be less constrained by the need to be practically useful.…
