After my bachelor thesis, I had some free time before I travelled to Australia for one year. As a personal project, I designed a handlettering-calendar for the year 2017 as a farewell gift for family & friends. Each lettering-illustration links to a historic event matching the month of the event.
Some letterings are dedicated to notable personalities (Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela), others are about groundbreaking discoveries (aeroplane, light bulb, …) or I just used inspiring quotes (Einstein). The calendar intends to make the reader aware of the simple things in life that are nowadays taken for granted, but were groundbreaking back then.
