My latest calendar design, Crisis Calendar, a calendar of time we live in.
Despite its appearance it’s a perfectly functional calendar. If you need some clues of how it works I could tell you months are columns and the first day of week is Monday.
With this design I want to emphasize not only its simplicity, there is no indication of the day number, or the month, or even the year we are in, but also its symbolic using simple scratches on wall as unique element of representation… like the count of someone trapped somewhere.
Not a easy read calendar, it is almost hidden, in the sight of all but somehow occult… it will be our secret.
Hopefully it will be some kind of countdown to this crisis don’t want to leave us.
Dedicated to Eduardo Blanco… the RevitMan! Hey guy you’ll love this one!!
There is also a white background version.

You only need to know two basic rules: each column represents a month and each week look like a colour gradient, starting on Monday (the darker). Despite of the characters, they all are random. Each week also has it’s own alpha level, it helps reading and also mimic the Matrix effect.
I was developing code for my “Crisis Calendar” (the simplest calendar ever) when I noticed that my draft files were really close to something similar to the unforgettable Matrix code screen . I spend a little time adapting it so I’m not sure if I will have time enough toÂ finish my other calendar ideas before the end of year.
