5 stunning examples of calendar design for 2013

Looking for some calendar design inspiration? Then look no further as we reveal a host of inspirational designs.

It’s that time of year again, as designers around the world are thinking of ways to make their 2013 calendars stand out from the crowd.

Branching out into calendar design is a great way to bring in extra client work, promote your own portfolio, the company you work for, or maybe the product you produce. In this showcase of great calendar design for 2013 we’ve tried to provide a good cross-section of examples, that offer unique and innovative calendar design approaches to one of the most traditional of products.

01. Fluid Animals

We’re big fans of Ben the Illustrator at Creative Bloq, and his 2013 calendar brings together twelve great artworks. The calendar is sized at A3 – 297x420mm – and is spiral bound and printed on high-quality 250gsm premium smooth paper with a board-backing.


02. Zoo Calendar

Looking for something to fill that lonely space on your desk? Then look no further than this awesome Zoo calendar. Die cut from heavy board, this 2013 calendar turns adorable zoo animals into unique desk-top sculptures, each displaying two months.

With no glue or scissors needed, fitting together parts with the same mark makes assembling each animal as easy as pie. Animals include: gorilla, deer, porcupine, ostrich, alligator, and camel.

03. Move with spirals

Created by Polish designer Łukasz Drwal, this calendar was created for use in print and in a digital. The two fonts used in the project are Zag and Lato, and we’re big fans of the clean design and strong use of geometric shapes in this example.

04. Planet Calendar 2013

This calendar from Hungary designer Szani Mészáros was created for a university project, where a creative use of paper was required. Mészáros used different papers for each month, and also integrated a moon calendar.

05. Pocket Calendar

This perfect pocket-sized calendar comes from the folks at Ink Scissors Paper - a design collective who specialise in handmade bespoke packaging, calendars, rubber stamps and party supplies. It comes with a mini binder clip but is also available bound with a screw post instead.

Each month is a separate card, each 3in x 5in, printed on both sides of heavy paper stock in a beautiful matte finish. Fifteen point paper, rounded corners and full color on both sides. The front of each card includes the month and year in colour with the days of the month in black.
