Last year, we designed a calendar in retrospect to 2019. We went into 2020 hoping for a better year but it turned out to be even worse than the previous. We’re back this year with a new calendar, in retrospect to 2020.
We decided we wanted a similar style to our last calendar by having big headlines as titles for each month and by using a different typeface for each topic. The calendar title uses ToY (Out of the Dark) with exclamation marks from Black Mamba Venom (Swiss Typefaces). We also made the decision to attribute a famous painting from the classical period to each month, because of how they dramatize the content. Bye 2020, Hi 2021!! was a way for us to close the wound of this painful year.
We had a little more fun this time by printing our calendar on three different materials: one was printed on a solid white paper background, another on a Rhodoïd clear sheet, and for the last one, we created an alternative version of the design that we printed on white organic cotton t-shirts. Hoping you have a great year and if not, we’ll try again next year.
