Now an annual project, our calendar, printed in Dublin in small quantities, is one of our highlights every year. The format remains the same, with perforated pages, giving you twelve ready to frame unique prints, the theme, chosen by the designer/illustrator, is what changes.
2018 is a significant year for Irish Design Shop, marking ten years in business. With this in mind, we asked Dublin design studio WorkGroup to create our 2019 calendar. They have collaborated with us since day one in business on every aspect of our branding, identity and website.
A year in development, WorkGroup have created a calendar which has a sense of continuity from month to month. Inspired by birthstones, a classic and timeless illustration of the months of the year, this calendar represents their beautiful and varied colours through macro photography. A cross section of locations across Dublin are represented, from the significant to the mundane. Locations such as The War Memorial Gardens, The Pro Cathedral, and Shauna's Pet Shop are referenced for their rich colours and textures, and as a symbol of everyday life for the modern Dubliner.
The format of this calendar is A3 Portrait. Printed digitally, the inside pages are Munken Polar 240gsm. The cover is soft touch matte laminate on 400gsm silk.
Each print from this calendar fits exactly into one of our large 30cm x 30cm Rocker Lane square frames.
