SILNT: Two Thousand and Nine

Project info:

The first of its series, Calender Two Thousand and Nine measures 271 x 841 mm, printed on 130 gsm New Raglin Recycled Paper and set in Mercury Display Type by Hoefler and Frere-Jones.

Originally made for the designer’s personal use, the calender’s unorthodox vertical format is ideal for marking project schedules and counting down to the deadlines.

The 2010 edition will be released in the fourth quarter of this year and features a new typeface, paper and packaging.
