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.
This Sunday, September 29, San Francisco Center for the Book will host its 10th annual Roadworks: Steamroller Printing Festival. Studio Hinrichs is excited to sponsor and participate in this day-long street fair that features local food, fine craft vendors and, the star of the show, a three-ton construction steamroller used to create large-scale prints from hand-carved linoleum blocks measuring 3 feet by 3 feet.

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. The concept for the poster was set aside for a decade, and now, twelve years after the heroic work of so many, the limited edition, five-color silkscreen poster is available, signed and numbered by Kit. 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.

For those of you who haven’t had the chance to meet our talented staff, I thought we’d take this opportunity to introduce you to the designers and support team of Studio Hinrichs. The caricatures were done during last years holiday party at Jardinière by our friend and colleague Zach Trenholm. Zach did such a wonderful job we thought that you might like to share the experience with us.
Several months ago we were asked by Julie Anixter, an Avery Dennison consultant, to create a “Designer Showcase” that features insights, examples and personal stories about packaging and design from some of the world’s leading designers and design school students.
The resulting website was launched in December. Designers visiting the site will discover packaging tips and new materials that can enhance their label designs and increase their impact on customers. The new site reflects Avery Dennison’s belief that designers and design firms deeply influence the way consumers think about and experience brands.
