Better late than never! Still in need of a 2018 desk calendar? Check out a little design + free download I’ve been working on.

As some of you may know, amongst several things I studied at Columbia College Chicago, Graphic Design was a part of my Art Direction classes– a lot of them, actually. Since then, I’ve Freelanced for a couple of companies, including the design for #ChefAdrian’s restaurant, Urban Counter. While I love to paint in my spare time, I also love to design. Nothing like opening a new InDesign document and starting fresh where literally anything is possible.

Calendars are always something I love to dive into. So many creative possibilities! I usually design them as gifts for friends and this year is no different.

This year I was inspired by stones I have laying around my house. A while back, I started a design series of Texture Stones which included different stacked textures in rounded stone shapes. This design follows suit showing off the different feels of our seasons by month. I love how moody they turned out with the soft and edgy mix of pastel colors and recycled textured overlay on top. I also always look for a different vehicle to display them and found these really cute Julia Kostreva Perpetual Calendar clipboards at Target and thought they were the perfect size for these desk calendars.

If you’re still looking for a new 2018 calendar, you can download all 12 months for free below! Hoping these inspire a new, creative year for you in the months ahead!
