LETS MAKE SOMETHING TOGETHER

 

BEAUTIFULLY TIMELES,
FUNCTIONALLY WORTHLESS

This calendar was developed from a prompt to design a calendar as an homage to a famous designer in graphic design history. I chose El Lissitzky who is famous for his use of color and shape. I wanted to create a calendar that was more compositional than functional and create a system where each shape correlates to a specific day of the week (see key below). This allowed me to break from the traditional iconography of calendar systems and create Lissitzky style compositions. The number and shape correlation for each date is accurate for each and every day in 2017. The usefulness of the calendar speaks to the usefulness of print calendars in contemporary society.
