The necessity to create a creative design calendar arrows during a preuniversity project. After thorough research I decided not to go with a simply decorative but rather come up with a multipurpose paper sculpture of some sort. Inspired by my gamer friends who were constantly in need of new dice since the old ones seemed to disappear so easily, I came up with the idea of a 3D Calendar with a hint of role-playing games. Each of the twelve sides refers to the months of the year and also shows graphics of different playing dice. The numbers shown in these dice-images are randomized in a way to ensure maximum potential probability. E.g. the image of a two sided die contains both 1 and 2 six times. Images of the dice on each side, the number-randomization and the calendar typography have all been uniquely designed by me for this particular project.

About IDA

A handful of designers, thinkers and entrepreneurs created the International Design Awards in 2007 as a response to the lack of recognition and celebration for smart and sustainable multidisciplinary design. The International Design Awards (IDA) exists to recognize, celebrate and promote legendary design visionaries and to uncover emerging talent in Architecture, Interior, Product, Graphic, and Fashion Design. IDA aspires to draw attention to the iconoclasm of design world wide, conceptualizing and producing great work.
