because of the calendar designed at nu, we were called to design a 40 year anniversary calendar for museu da imagem e do som in são paulo.
the museum had gone through an institutional and physical reform and lunched a new visual identity (signed by ps2) shortly before, so we used the fonts and some of the colors proposed in ps2's manual.
since the idea put forth by mis' management was to make a desk calendar, we proposed a dust jacket that changed the scale of the object: on one side the 40 year anniversary poster and on the other, the museum's current proposals.
here, the calendar, with the dust jacket.
and here the back cover.
on the dust jacket we also used a principle proposed by ps2 for the museum's invitations: the fold showed, on the cover and the back cover, both sides of the poster at the same time, creating a combination of colors (red-blue and green-orange) which wasn't found on the poster.
the calendar had the same shape as the museum's invitations (105 x 160 mm) and was very simple, with only two plays made on it: each season had one of the colors, and the designs for the phases of the moon, replace the days in which they occurred.
in order not to have any of the colors, the calendar's cover was white (hot stamped), and had all the lunar phase changes of the year together.
the sheets were stapled on the front and perforated in order to be ripped out every month.
here we see january, in red for the summer, and its 4 moons.
in march, the transition from summer to fall (orange).
the winter in blue.
the spring in green.
and summer again.
the calendar was supported over a foot that was the last sheet, folded and fit to the penultimate one.
this penultimate sheet had a small calendar of the whole year.
that was the 40 year anniversary poster (385 x 610 mm), featuring images of the museum’s history.
and on the back, the texts and images related to the axes of the museu today.
