As many are putting the finishing touches on their calendars, we continue to frantically search for inspiration…and find it again and again. This time out it’s a 100% paper based desk calendar with a decidedly 8-bit, LED feel. Dublin design student Stuart Greer’s creation features 365 cards that are color coded and contain puzzling looking rectangles and squares of varying sizes. These only begin to make sense when you glance at the front of the card holder itself, and that day’s date and day of the week is displayed. Remove the day’s card at day’s end and be greeted with tomorrow’s date on the front of the holder.
The calendar was submitted for the 2014 YCN Student Awards that required entrants to develop a calendar to promote Fedrigoni’s Woodstock line. A really marvelous example of what a little planning can accomplish.
