With the new year ahead it is time for thinking about calendars!
I'm working on a calendar project since 2009.
This year it's the fourth time for me to produce the Typographic Wall Calendar and I wanted to share that with you.
I thought this would be the right place to share my project:
I'm working on a typographic wall calendar, made of two thousand and eleven keyboard keys. Last year I did one made of 2010 keys.(http://typophile.com/node/65810)
This year I turned the design into a Kickstarter project. Kickstarter is a public funding platform for design and art projects.
Here is the link to the project-website with a little video: http://kck.st/20eleven
I also was invited to a lengthy interview about my design process:
On my website i wrote a bit more in depth about the piece:
This is the wall calendar for the year 2010. It's made of two thousand and ten keyboard keys. This design offers a new visual experience of time, differently than your average wall calendar. It looks beautiful on the wall, and makes finding dates and marking events a creative process.
The size of the print is B0 (70cm x 100cm / 27.56” x 39.37”).
The printing is done with a standard 4c offset printing machine on 135g/m2 glossy paper, finished with a UV coating to protect the colors from bleaching. The UV coating also provides protection against water and dust.
Worldwide shipping (folded in a protected envelope) is included in the price of $20.10.
For $9.90 extra the wall calendar will be sent rolled in a reusable plastic tube.
