2007 Calendar

Designer W. Bradford Paley has come up with an elegant twist on the design of the standard wall calendar.

Clicky for large

Paley writes:

“The visual/cultural resonances with ancient native American calendars, mandalas, antique engravings of the solar system; the red weekends at the bright center and the wavy outer corona all have been turned to directly support the calendar’s use as a tool. It contextualizes every hour, even on a year’s time scale: if someone marks the calendar, then looks back in even as little as an hour, they will be able to see time’s inexorable march.”

Information Esthetics is offering a free download of the calendar, but you really should purchase the expertly offset, high resolution version to fully appreciate this gorgeous example of information design.

An escapee from a government contractor’s test lab, the monkey lives in hiding, hacking away at the keyboard to bring you random thoughts, stories, news, and graphics. Depending on his mood, he may be informative, amusing, obnoxious, or inane.
