Had to share these images of two new 2013 Calendars from Design legends Pentagram – (the world’s largest independent design consultancy). Published by Abrams, both calendars come in wall and engagement editions that will brighten your workspace or home all year long. Pantone also famously forecasts an official “color” for this year—Emerald 17-5641 is the color of 2013—and the calendar similarly selects a color for each month, represented in the images as well as in playful taglines like “Tickled Pink” and “Mellow Yellow.” The grid of the wall calendar looks like a series of Pantone color chips, with the days of the month ranging through the shades of the featured color.
The Art of Andy Warhol calendar is one of Abrams’s most popular, and 2013 is the third year running Pentagram have designed the title. Authorised by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the calendar includes a mix of Pop artist’s unknown, rarely seen works with his more iconic images. This year’s edition centers on Warhol’s prints, with a focus on his more hedonistic, sensual subjects. The works have been chosen to thematically correspond with the months and their holidays: Skull appears with October, for instance; Pointsettias is December’s image.
Certainly beats our standard traditonal Thermofast Calendar; which normally has a plethora of skin tone shades in the form of partly dressed young ladies! If you’d like to see a thermo sample of the 2013 Pantone Colour of the Year, Emerald 17-5641, please email us with your address at email@example.com and we’ll get you some samples in the post. Our turn around for business cards can be a little as 2/3 days and cost from just £49.00 for 250 cards in single colour thermography.
