Design — T-shirt Calendar 2011

A creative calendar for 2011

Recently, I posted the news of my new 2011 Calendars (‘Green’ and ‘Flowers’) in the DesiCreative Forum (A popular Indian Advertising Forum). A good discussion followed about the design merits of these calendars. Although I never claimed that the designs are unique and creative, these were brought up by a couple of people. This made me to ask myself: “Can I design a creative Calendar with a ‘Wow!’ effect?”

And then…

After some hours, I came up with this unique and creative 2011 calendar.

Calendar 2011 Tshirt

The Idea

  • Only one month will be printed on a T-shirt. So one needs to buy the full 12-sets for a year.
  • Since the calendar on the T-shirt is for the owner’s use, it is printed by rotating the calendar 180 degrees.
  • The calendar is printed in perspective for easy reading.
    Do you remember the brand names painted on a cricket ground? They are painted in a distorted perspective view so that the strategically placed TV cameras can show them in correct proportions.
  • If you feel that you won’t be able to read the calendar on your T-shirt, then opt for the ‘horizontally flipped’ or mirrored version. Here, you have to use the make-up mirror in your vanity bag.

What do you think about this ‘perspective printed/flipped printed, self-reading’ idea? I love to hear your thoughts.

  1. Dear Bibin, Thank you for re-sharing this design info in Buzz and Facebook.
    Thanks to Remya, Shihas, Anjana, Najeeb and Anuradha for visiting this page and commenting on it.

  2. Smashing idea! haven’t seen anything like it, but I guess you have to print at least 4 or 6 months on a t-shirt, or you won’t find many takers 😉
