This was a pretty messy year. A contentious election, war across the world, and all manner of tragic deaths among creative people. Personally, I need to take a break from it all, and what better way to do so than with the beauty of calendar design.
Join me and ease your mind with these lovely 2017 calendar designs, gathered from around the web:
7 Gorgeous Calendar Designs to Ring in 2017
The Mr Cup Creative Manifesto Letterpress Calendar
Released once per year, this enthralling letterpress calendar by Mr Cup is consistently one of our favorites. Below are images of the limited edition calendar, but you can get the regular edition here, and it’s just as lovely.

The Bureau Oberhaeuser Calendar 2017
Hansen/2 2017 Calendar
Another brilliant one out of Germany, this calendar by Hansen/2 visualizes time by showing the remaining weeks to the end of the year, month-by-month, with each week represented by die-cut holes that disappear by month.
This wall calendar by collage and paper design creator Fitacola features creative scenes with torn paper. Sadly the calendar is sold out, but you can get individuals of each month’s artwork here. More details here.
