Gallery Print’s FontFont Calendar for 2015

We were over the moon to be approached by Gallery Print, the Berlin based printer specialising in cooperations with designers and artists, to design their 2015 calendar. 

Not just an ordinary calendar the custom design also doubles up as FontFont® typeface specimen, offering daily font inspiration with 365 selected FontFonts hidden behind the scratch-off panels of each day!

Designed as a set of posters, each month can be positioned side by side making it perfect for long term planning as well as offering fantastic type inspiration after use as a calendar. To find out more behind the theory and design behind this brilliantly unusual calendar head over to our Behance page.

So fancy getting your hands on a free copy? Then be sure to come down to Gallery Print's ‘End of Summer' party on Friday 29th August at 7pm for food, drinks and dancing whilst a cool selection of DJs spin vinyl on top of the printers! 

To get involved all you have to do is sign up to the guest list by August 25th on gallery-print.de/party
