2013 Typography Calendar


What do I love about this calendar from Studio Hinrichs?! Well … everything! From those 12 yummy fonts to the tactile non-glare McCoy Matte, the design had me at January.

The design team asked well-known designers to choose their favorite typeface to include in the calendar. This is a great way to feature some less familiar typefaces and educate the public on the designers who create the many typefaces we use every day. The resulting collection certainly makes for a beautiful finished piece.

The cover pays homage to all of us who doodle to get the creative juices flowing. A big, bold red “365” pops cheerfully on that pristine white paper. Layering multiple styles of each digit, one atop the other, creates an eye-catching graphic.

The scale of this calendar really feels right, too. You can see and appreciate the fine details of the featured typefaces. It’s also cleverly designed in two sizes: 23″ x 33″ (wrapping paper anyone?) and 12″ x 18″ (perfect for the top of my desk). Other endearing touches: all contributors’ birthdays are included in the calendar, and you can actually write on the paper (now there’s an idea so often overlooked).
