'New year, new me' is something that we hear every time a new year rolls around. But for us lovers of all things aesthetic, a new year is also a great time for new and beautifully designed diaries, calendars and stationery to come into our lives. As 2018 commences, we couldn’t help but notice the influx of desk calendars popping up around our design studio, so why not show you the pretty paper and delightfully-presented dates keeping us organised this year?
Adrian’s: 2018 Fruit & Lines Calendar
This vibrant and fruit-filled calendar is Risolve Studio's first ever calendar. Every month features a different print from Marisol Ortega's Fruit & Lines series and a different combination of risograph inks. The best thing about it? You can keep all the prints as every page is perforated, so you’re also getting twelve amazing art pieces to add to your collection. Check out both Marisol Ortega’s and Risolve Studio's Instagram accounts for more examples of this interesting work.

Lucy’s: Fedrigoni 365
When the Italian paper manufacturer launched its annual calendar, we knew it would take pride of place in the studio! You might have seen it featured on our Instagram and Twitter page - this elegant book has been beautifully designed by TM Studio and features the work of 365 UK-based creatives that have contributed with their own interpretation of each date of the year. The result of this process is a striking black calendar with single-colour designs.
