Sort of like spring here in the aspen area, our april and may calendar posts are very late. Neither spring nor calendar posts can be skipped. So here are the April and May calendars and links to download them. Enjoy!
This came into my mailbox last week, and I couldn’t resist sharing. It’s by the uber-talented Grant Snider (who I’d love to meet, by the way) and came via the very helpful Red Lemon Club blog. I love Grant’s illustration style, color choices, and, most of all, his humor! I like the top two sections best, and the bottom one, of course (who can resist elephants?). How about you?
Today’s Google doodle honoring Saul Bass is a treat for the eyes. Bass, who would be 93 years old today,made movie title sequences an art form in the 50s and 60s with his bold, iconic and abstract images. Google references nine of his films, including three Hitchcock classics– Psycho, North by Northwest and Vertigo– plus Spartacus, West Side Story, Around the World in 80 Days and more. According to The Washington Post the design team was lead by Matt Cruickshank.
I read in the HOW Design blog this morning that Unpackaged has redesigned their space, which is lovely, and you can see it here. I was more taken, however, by their website and it’s clean, black and white graphics. I especially like the icons at the top of the page. I’m still waiting for someone to open one of these in the Roaring Fork Valley, by the way!
Woo Hoo! Our client’s amazingly inspiring film festival starts Thursday. Can’t wait, hope you’ll join in the fun!

It’s March, the days are longer and while it’s still snowing lots in Aspen and the rest of our valley, we’re also sensing that spring is near.
New month, new calendar. Get yours here.
but here are some questions to ask yourself when trying to design in a more sustainable manner:
- Are you reducing the overall amount of paper you need, and choosing the lightest- weight materials?
- Are you reusing your existing and returned material?
- Does the material have the lowest possible carbon footprint?
- Is the material easily reused by the consumer?
- Is the material made from recycled content with the highest available level of post- consumer material?
- Is the material recyclable?
- If the material gets thrown away can it be landfilled safely?
- Will it take up the smallest amount of space available?
