Our favourite 2013 calendars

A round-up of our favourite ways to mark off the days this year.

 Bubble Calendar

Who doesn’t love popping bubble wrap? Surely only the hardest hearted of curmudgeons. Smart Brooklyn-based designer Stephen Turbek has come up with a brilliant way of playing on this simple, yet potent pleasure, in conceiving the Bubble Calendar. Simply ‘pop’ each day as it goes by. As the UK distributor, Fototo puts it, ‘Bursting bubbles no longer has to be an idle pursuit confined to a quick dash to the stationery cupboard, or a quick go on a recently received parcel.’ Bliss.

Purlfrost has created the huge, self-adhesive vinyl Giant Year Planner. It comes with a sheet of 150 stickers to highlight important events, and the company assures us that once the year is over it can be peeled from the wall without even a smidgeon of ‘sticky residue or damage to walls.’

Moving The World

Papierfabrik Scheufelen’s calendar behemoth, entitled Moving the World, is not for the faint-hearted day-crosser, spanning approximately 457m2. While that might be something of an exaggeration, it’s certainly a biggie – fitting, perhaps for the famous people that adorn it. Designed by consultancy Strichpunkt, there’s some lovely illustration, with each month showing the sketched head of a figure that the company deems to have shown ‘courage and innovative strength.’ The heads are interwoven with symbols of the achievements that have earnt them a place in the calendar.
