About the Design

Time seems to be flying by so fast I can hardly keep track of what day or week it is. I wanted a calendar that I couldn’t ignore. With big, bold numbers and a simple color palette, hopefully June’s desktop calendar will help you — and me — keep track of the month.

Part of the inspiration for this design came from a book of optical illusions I stumbled upon one day. By placing dark squares in an even grid pattern, the brain gets fooled into seeing something that isn’t really there (see the blinking dots?).

The type face featured is Akzidenz Grotesk Super.

Happy June, everyone!
