When Helvetica came out (the movie about the font, not the font itself) I found myself jealous of the designers I knew who had a deep appreciation for the font. I sadly didn’t have a whole lot of love for Helvetica- it wasn’t exactly my cup of tea and I found myself yearning for a film about my favorite fonts, Futura and Neutra. Although Futura is often well-known to people my age because of Wes Anderson’s movies, I’m partial to Futura and clean, classic Neutra because they were the required fonts for typing press releases at my old job. Because of the frequency with which I used both fonts they became my go-to favorites for everything. So when I see either of them pop up in design products it makes me very, very happy.
This ‘Interactions’ typographic calendar from Briar at Oven Door Owl Press in Portland, Oregon is right up my alley because the first edition is all about Neutra font. Made from salvaged graph paper, each small calendar (5.5″ square when closed) features a layered typographic design for each month. I love the clean, graphic look and think it would be perfect for use in a small office. You can choose from three paper colors right here, each one at a very affordable $10-$13.
