This 2013 calendar is the creative efforts of designer and typographer Heidi Helyard, and writer (and editor of Brilicious) Keeta Nova. Inspired by paint pigments the old masters used, the modern Pantone colour system, Swiss typography and 70’s graphics, Heidi aimed to design a modern, colourful, legible and useable calendar. As with the nature of oil pigments and paint, she used layers and tints of colours, and experimented with the transparency of overlaying shapes. Keeta took up the challenge to provide edgy and poetic written concepts, for each of the calendar months. While she knows they are seriously abstract, true designers and lovers of pigments will easily uncover the true meaning and relevancy behind her words.
