Time After Time

The goal of this project is to design a calendar that simultaneously explores time and numerals in a creative and functional manner. Students were asked to consider a variety of solutions by investigating lunar phases, astrology, historical references, the meaning of numbers, culture, seasons, religion, nature, information architecture, and more.

“Time has no divisions to mark its passage. There is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols.” –Thomas Mann
