2014_Cal

Now in its 13th year, the Typography Calendar, created by Kit Hinrichs, draws attention to the variety and aesthetic quality of type itself by making the typeface the primary graphic element on each page. Stunningly decorative, the 365 Calendar elevates appreciation of typography as an art form.
The calendar features twelve unique typefaces, includes descriptions of the type, shares a biography of each designer and notes all major holidays and the birthdays of the type designers on the calendar. For the 2014 edition, Studio Hinrichs invited 12 world-renowned international members of the Alliance Graphique Internationale to nominate some of their favorite typefaces. The AGI members’ choices range from the traditional to the avant-garde, the austere to Old World script flourishes.

It is available in two sizes: a supersized 23″ x 33″ version suitable for wall hanging ($47) and a smaller 12″ x 18″ version appropriate for desk or wall use ($29).

The calendars are available for purchase via our Store.

To honor the first responders and victims of the 9/11 attacks, Kit Hinrichs originally designed this poster right after the tragic events in 2001.

Profits from the sale of the 9/11 Poster benefit 9/11 Health Now, a nonprofit health program that “offers care to responders, workers, volunteers and survivors of the World Trade Center disaster.” This poster and other award-winning posters signed by Kit Hinrichs are for sale in The Store.
