Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing a new calendar available in my shop for next year — the 2015 MMXV Letterpress Wall Calendar.
It's not understatement when I say I LOVED the opportunity to dream up some new calendar styles for 2015. I've really enjoyed reworking my astrology calendar every year; adding something here, refining something there. But I think this new calendar has been snoozing in some dark corner at the back of my mind for a long time, waiting to become real.
I was dead-set on printing something letterpress this year, so I designed the MMXV Calendar with that in mind. I was ecstatic to work with Kristine of Presshaus LA on this project, and she did an AMAZING job — they turned out better than I could have imagined. First, they were foil stamped with white or gold foil on a large format press + then finished off with a dark indigo ink for the months + numbers and a blind deboss for the footer. I think the simplicity of the design balances well with the involved print process. There's a nod to the classic while still feeling very fresh + minimal, which is what I love the most about these.
All three styles are available in the shop and make an excellent holiday gift to ring in a very important year — MMXV.
