This Spring 2009 Yale University Art Gallery calendar cover is by the talented and massively prolific London-based designer and illustrator Kate Moross. Kate has a simply splendid love of geometry, isometric forms, handcrafted type, and bicycles. In addition to throwing down all sorts of tasty images for a superstar roster of clients as well as creating lots of ultra-cool loot, Kate runs Isomorphs, “the world’s first art-driven record label.” Her calendar cover, like so much of her work, is playful, engaging, and undeniably rad.
Yes, summer may be winding down. But some design stands the test of time. Todd St. John’s handsome woodcut fold-out type for the Yale University Art Gallery Calendar Cover series certainly looks brilliantly cool and contemplative (and organic and fun!) no matter what the season. It’s a beautiful contribution to the series, which invites talented designers to render standard text for the Gallery’s seasonal calendar of events.
