Task Description
I have been looking for an A1 2012 family planner and I have not been able to find one. Hence I would like help to develop such a planner. I plan to print it on matt paper, portrait orientated. I have attached some reference pictures of our 2011 planner. I like interesting typography, clear clean colours and simple illustration. I need space to write in daily events and need the weeks and days to be clearly delineated from each other. Each day cell needs the date and day in it (please refer to the file uploaded for a visual reference confirming this). Each weekend needs some kind of colour/ typographic delineation. I want a design for a year-at-a-view calendar. I plan to print the planner in Sydney, Australia with and probably to sell printed copies online. The terms & conditions of this project are that I will own the design concept 100% and in perpetuity worldwide once payment has been made. (NB. The attached Work File in Word contains a rough layout and all months, days and dates all typed up to make for quicker design.)

Hi. I've posted 2 attachments to show what I'm looking for. I want a calendar a bit like the one which I had for 2011, but no watermarks, no photos. I want a new creative edge to my 2012 calendar. The PDF file shows some of the co ours and typography which I like. The Word file contains a calendar with all the months, days, dates typed in correctly to help a) shortcut your efforts and b) provide further clarification on what I'm looking for (one 'cell' for every day including date and day and space for me to write in a few comments). Hope this helps. Nicholas

Hi. Thanks for taking on this project. As mentioned I like your Fun Time Scooter and Green Hippo projects. Perhaps these styles can be applied to my project in some way.... keeping in mind that I need to be able to write up my appointments etc on the calendar, so the background colour/s need to be pretty neutral/white.

Hi. I was thinking bright colors, but I'm open to anything that doesn't produce a dull corporate wall planner (hospital grays, aquas etc). Nicholas
