For years Studio Hinrichs has delighted designers and non-designers alike with their annual clean-and-classy Typography Calendar. Featuring 12 distinctive typefaces chosen by international designers, it comes in two useful sizes and is printed on a pleasant-to-the-touch Sappi McCoy Matte [Get Swatchbook] that avoids the glare so many other calendars insist upon these days. Flip past the now-iconic 365 cover doodle and you’ll find descriptions of the type featured, a biography of each designer, and even their birthdays throughout the calendar year.
Begun by studio founder Kit Hinrichs back in his days at Pentagram more than a decade ago, the calendar has exposed us to typefaces and designers we might otherwise never have discovered. And with one on our desk (the 12″ x 18″ version) and another our meeting room wall (23″ x 33”), not a day goes by that we aren’t in some way reminded of just how important the right typography is to great design.
