This is a calendar which is supposed to be hung on a wall with a hole punched on the top edge and the months will be flipped up or down as time goes by. It was designed as a regular publication but because it will be flipped vertically, the actual design is rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise. For preview purposes, the preview image as well as preview set images are rotated to show the calendar as a final product.

There is a separate layer with the hole. Some printers require to specifically mark the cut-off hole contour, therefore I have designated a arbitrary spot color which is only the shape color of the hole. The hole layer is by default hidden. If your printer doesn’t require such technical intricacies, then you can safely let it hidden and just ignore it.

This one comes in two flavors. There are two different backgrounds: one black and the other golden. Each type is a separate InDesign file so you can play whatever you like with your actual photos.

For preview purposes, the preview image as well as the Live Preview document are rotated to show the calendar as a final product. More than that, the Live Preview shows the pages as spreads to show the calendar as will actually hang on a wall. Also the live preview shows the two documents united in a single presentation but there are separate InDesign files for each background.

The calendar entries are for real and are set for 2014 with the last spread being an entire 2015 calendar. But each calendar figure is actually a separate box, so you could transform it for each year imaginable. More than that, each month have entries from the previous and the next month which are less visible (transparent) to indicate that those are from another month. That transparency is an object style so you can modify it at once for all calendar if, say you decide to change the color of the black stripe where the dates are.

I have made also editable Illustrator and Photoshop files. Except for the Cover and the Back Cover each Photoshop and Illustrator files contain two pages corresponding to an InDesign spread. In Photoshop I have placed a green rectangle instead of the image. That rectangle is a Smart Object. This means that you can replace it with the actual image easily.

Fonts used:
