This is a calendar that needs more patience to read,
this year we break the inertial way how people read the calendar.
Although it looks like a complicated graphic code,
but basically there’s nothing changed from the general calendar.
The only thing that I did is emphasizing ten digits of the numbers (date).
Through the color arrangement, ppl will see color numbers (ten digits) first,
and then they will see the grey numbers (single digits).
For example, the day “25”. Reading order will first find the colored “2″
and then the corresponding gray “5″ and they might find it less than a second.
I only changed a bit of the reading order and made the whole calendar into a simple logic game.
Since 2O14, the calendar was never just a paper for counting days for us.
It was “the only experimental field in a year” and this one can last until the end of the year.
We really feel very grateful for everyone who was willing to participate in these experiments for the past five years.
We have used this calendar as a metaphor to question about our every day,
and We hope people also build there own perspective for every detail what they take it for granted.

’19 Calendar | MAKE THE RULES AND BREAK THEM ALL
For this years calendar we put the focus on type-based image creation. Sometimes the beauty lies in the most basic elements – in this case the numbers. We created a bunch of rules that we had to break so as to create room for experimentation. Each design reflects the current month and has it’s unique character depending on the used colours and shapes.
Starting off with creating a system that is based on the same grid and typeface for each month. Different layers of elements are designed in such way they interact with each other. Through experimentation we let the differences in colours, shapes,scaling and positioning decide on the overal visual appearance.

The project 360° 365 days takes the shape of circle as the starting point. When connecting the points on the circumference, different polygons are created. The studio used the technique of diffusion, equidistant cutting and the crossover of two colors to create the third color. Combining with Risograph printing, this experiment of colors rendered unexpected outcomes.
