freebies // The 2013 Designer Calendar

Happy New Year everyone!!!

As promised yesterday, I've got a nice gift for you that will last all year long {giggles}. Continue reading to unwrap it :)

Back on early December, Jacqueline Auvigne, a fellow designer and ABSPD friend, showcased calendars created by some of our other classmates. It was then that it all came to me: ask 11 designers to create with me a downloadable 2013 calendar to share with you all and to make every month happier, prettier and funner. Our 2013 Designer Calendar project was born.

Choosing which of my many fellow designers to invite to the project was hard… they are ALL great designers and I admire their work, so my only choice was to start making a list and ask the first 11 that came to my mind. All 11 of them were very eager and happy to participate in spite of the short notice.

Each of us got a month, the same colour palette (Pantone's 2013 Spring colours), and layout (horizontal). We were all then, free to design. As a result, we ended up with an eclectic calendar that reveals our own personal styles and backgrounds as designers. 

1 - 2

3 - 4 

5 - 6

7 - 8

9 - 10

11 - 12


The calendars are meant for you to download and print, and use to organise your family, work or personal routines. All calendars can be printed as big as an A3 format (42x29.7cm / 16.5x11.7in).

January was designed by me, and can now be downloaded by clicking here or clicking on the download link below the image. I hope you like it and add it to your lives ;)

Enjoy the day and start planning the great year we all have ahead!!!

  8. This is fantastic MaJo and such beautiful diverse work from all of the creative ladies. Great job!! I am so far behind already and was happy to have this calender to help set me straight! I have written down all the deadlines for contests and such on it and will hopefully follow my year "word", ok phrase, "be involved to evolve" by actually submitting more to contests and to just show the group. Thanks and best wishes to all for a wondrously productive and creative 2013.
