AaGt 2022 Calendar

Andrew Ashton (Aa)

The AaGt Calendar 2022 is a typographic exploration of the dynamic nature of life. Can type capture the highs and lows, the order, the chaos, the energy of life? Can a calendar showcase the beauty of great type design, and can quality printing elevate an object? Working with renowned type design from Tobias Frere-Jones, Vincent Chan, Kris Sowersby, Mark Niemeijer, James Edmondson, Cornel Windlin to Adrian Frutiger, a challenge to the calendar resulted.
