The Circular Calendar by Sören Lachnit.

Since it is a whopping 12 degrees outside, with a windchill of about zero I am longing for spring. Unfortunately it’s still more than two months away. That doesn’t mean that I can’t get ready for the Vernal Equinox with a little bit of well designed flair.

Designed by Sören Lachnit, this single sheet wall calendar calculates the number of hours of daylight at 50°, 40°, and 30° north of the equator. It marks the seasonal changes, and uses rings to mark weekdays, months, weeks, lunar and solar phases, and leaves room for jotting down notes, should you decide you want to write on this stunning visual piece.


The clean simple, minimalist design is printed on silk finish paper at 33.11  x 46.81 inches. It’s a great example of international design style, with clean typography and a two color layout. I like how it breaks from the design norm and engages the viewer with it’s circular form.
