The Oscars 2011

The next Sunday we will have new Oscar winners. And it’s true, we will remember only the winners… but  as a tribute to Little Miss Sunshine and because the best is not always the winner, I think it would be nice if we make a visualization with all the nominees…

So I took all the relevant names and movies from the official nominees for the 83rd Academy Awards from this website, and spread them over an image of the Oscar.

Javier Bardem, Biutiful, Jeff Bridges, True Grit, Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network, Colin Firth,The King’s Speech, James Franco, 127 Hours, Christian Bale, The Fighter, John Hawkes, Winter’s Bone, Jeremy Renner, The Town, Mark Ruffalo, The Kids Are All Right, Geoffrey Rush, The King’s Speech, Annette Bening, The Kids Are All Right, Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole, Jennifer Lawrence, Winter’s Bone, Natalie Portman, Black Swan, Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine, Amy Adams, The Fighter, Helena Bonham Carter, The King’s Speech, Melissa Leo, The Fighter, Hailee Steinfeld… till 336 names.

And the winner is…

2011 Grass Calendar

It’s time to talk again about calendar design. I hate the conventional calendar and I really think that a calendar must be useful but beautiful at the same time.

This one is based in a grass grow pattern. Each branch represents a month.

The nice thing of this calendar is his generative behavior… I can have an ‘infinite’ variations of the same calendar because each time I click another random version come out with different colors and branch movement. So if you run a business and want to give an unique calendar to each one of your clients it could be a good choice. You know, contact me!.

You can find here English and Spanish versions. If you want another language please post it here or send me an email.

There is also a new white background version.

I will come back with the rest of my creative calendars… and with new ones.
