Tick-tock. Tick-tock. Time flies but even if we cannot stop it, we can at least make wonderful memories to help us get through life.

We all use a calendar to remind us of events or simply to keep our life in order but the problem is that most of them are quite plain. Maybe it’s time for a change. That’s why artists and designers have created some unique and fun calendars that will brighten up your day.

Enjoy these awesome ideas and maybe…change your calendar with a more creative one.

Ink Calendar by Oscar Diaz

The “Ink Calendar” is one of the most creative designs so far. The ink colors each number, spreading on the paper, as days go by. “A calendar self-updated, which enhances the perception of time passing and not only signaling it.” – as described on Oscar’s site. Another fun-fact about this calendar is that the ink colors are based on a spectrum, which relate to a “color temperature scale”. That means that each month has a color related to our perception of the weather in that month. The colors range from dark-blue in December to, three shades of green in spring or oranges and red in the summer.

 Perpetual Calendar by Gideon Dagan

The great thing about it is that this unique calendar can be used year after year, becoming an eco-concious product. The calendar’s string-tethered seemingly gravity-defying ball is suspended in mid-air and must be moved manually to mark each month while a second ball on the horizontal beam indicates the day. Its design makes it perfect for modern homes.
