For 2017, the calendar was Inspired by Prince's album, "The Gold Experience". It celebrates our most precious asset: the people among us, blood-bound or not, who have contributed to the meaning of our existence--our family.
The Gold Standard Calendar is a celebration of internal wealth, of strength and the communities of our given and chosen families.
I worked to design a calendar that would highlight the beautiful theme by using gold accents and bold serif fonts mixed with script quotations.
2015 marked the 5th year of bklyn boihood's annual calendar, and with that came a new approach.
For the first time, each person shared a personal story or quote about their journey to be included in addition to their photograph.
I used select colors from each photo to highlight important holidays and color gradients to tint both the stories and the calendar backgrounds.
