Beautiful Find: Paper Fruit Calendar by Nearly Normal Craft

It's nearing the end of June and one of the things that saddens me is seeing the abundance of diaries and calendars marked at discounts on the shelves of stationery stores.  As a designer, I've considered designing and making a calendar / journal at some point and the question of how I can improve on the traditional calendar and what I would do with excess always scares me out of it.

Nearly Normal Craft have taken the challenge of redesigning the annual calendar with a difference.  Each month is depicted in a 3 dimensional way - using fruit as inspiration!

Each month is represented with a portrait format poster containing an image of a 3 dimensional fruit with the month's number on the fruit.  The dates are cleverly aligned to the left of the poster, creating an abstract calendar.

It's a fresh and colourful approach to the annual calendar and becomes a wonderful graphic keepsake beyond the calendar year.  You can see more of Nearly Normal's work on their Behance page.  Have a beautiful week folks!
