Freelance illustrator Joe Rogers -- aka Colourbox -- spent two months creating the calendar, which has been created using abstracts papercuts and then risographed onto matte paper and hand-bound by Joe himself
The Colourbox 2012 Calendar was created by Joe Rogers as a beautiful, yet functional promotional tool, which also includes a CD containing a PDF portfolio, a selection of iPhone and desktop wallpapers as well as seven music tracks created and mix by Joe. Also included in the promo are a small selection of badges and fridge magnets, again celebrating Joe's illustrative talents.
The calendar comprises 24 beautifully printed pages, two for each calendar month: The first page includes a full page abstract papercut illustration, which can be removed and framed;
The second page shows individual calendar dates that highlight the hundreds of designated holidays and national days that are celebrated around the world, with each one represented by a pen and ink drawing.
Joe Rogers graduated with a First in Visual Communication, majoring in Illustration. Clients past and present include Poketo, Target, Graniph and Computer Arts. His work has also been featured in a number of books and magazines including Tote Bag, Postcard Book, Made & Sold and AIO Images and he's run a number of successful exhibitions as part of a creative collective.
