New year, new calendar

Welcome to 2013 and welcome to a new month. Something I always look forward to is picking out my favourite monthly desktop calendar. By now you know that I have a few favourite illustrators I turn to when choosing my desktop calendars. Moreover, I occasionally can’t choose between them, so I change frequently to enjoy all of them. For those of you who only recently became a reader of my blog, I will share my favourite desktop calendar illustrators once again.


Pimpelmees, a Dutch illustator and designer of stationery Her free monthly calendars can be found here.


Gennine Zlatkis usually depicts birds. Her free downloads are here. Also have a look at her beautiful and inspiring book.


Caroline Johansson, illustrator en graphic designer is so talented. She keeps amazing me with her illustrations.  To get a feel of her style, have a look at her round up of 2012 on her blog. You can find her monthly wallpapers here.


Let’s not forget Dutch illustration bureau Studio Vrolijk  You can find all of their free monthly downloads here.


Elisandra makes print as well as digital calendars and shares her creations on her blog. I heart the vintage camera calendar she sells in her Etsy shop. When writing this blog post she didn’t publish her desktop calendar yet, but do check out her printable calendars while waiting.


At Basic Grey they team up with different digital designers to spruce up our desktop walls. This month’s calendar was made in cooperation with Robyn Meierotto of Pink Trike Design.

The website is a platform for designers, artists and illustrators to share their work. They also have a monthly international competition to send in desktop calendars.  There you’ll always find something to your liking. Like this one designed by Webolution.
