2013 Carnevale Calendar


Production Method

I like a calendar that it neither cute nor funny, a calendar that steers away from full-on stereotypes, a calendar that keeps it simple, yet interesting. A calendar… like this one.

Project Description

My employer (Carnevale) wanted to create a fun, memorable and lasting holiday gift for our clients and friends. We decided on a calendar because it has longevity and can encompass a wide range of design skills. Now that we also have it available in our Etsy shop we hope it is something that everyone can get a chance to enjoy.

Production Lesson(s)

The biggest lesson I learned while creating this calendar was trying to get the box/stand to work properly. We tried multiple versions of the stand as well as the die-cut front before landing on this build. All of the hard work paid off in the end. I can't thank our printers enough!”
