We have a thing for calendars, and this one is particularly good. Pentagram’s Eddie Opara and Brankica Harvey designed Pantone’s 2013 Wall and Engagement calendars, utilizing the famed PMS color chips as a design device. The color chips are treated as pixels, creating digitized images for each month. Very clever and well executed.

We’ve been finding that our clients’ latest obsession is the “wordle” or “tag cloud“. In that same vein, German designer Dirk Schächter painstakingly handset the names of countries worldwide in Helvetica Neue Black Condensed to correspond with their respective land masses. This 2-sided poster is not a product of computer auto-generation, folks… but good old fashioned typography. Pentagram also designed a visually similar series of posters for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, found here.
