The Large Wall Calendar began in 2014 as a typographic response to the classic modern Stendig Calendar I had used for the prior ten years. In the context of our highly mobile, digital culture, my first-person understanding of the purpose of a wall calendar had evolved.
Every year, the Large Wall Calendar is reimagined. The design for 2018 presents semiotic forms in a synthesis of ink marker on clear film and clean vector linework. The result is a formal and technical experiment pushed to it's own conclusion. Its forms are transitory along with what they signify.
The date bar is set with months in Surveyor Text Bold, Sundays in Gotham Book, and numerals in Berthold Akzidenz Grotesk light.
