For this exhibit, I chose to go a little more traditionally functional with a sample calendar layout using live shapes in Adobe Photoshop, clipping masks, and vector manipulation with Adobe Illustrator.
- White space and month name text used to contrast with the strong teal colors found in the image and header.
- The teal header rectangle was sampled from the colors found in the image itself while white was repeated in the month header to provide both repetition and contrast.
- Decorative font choice (Wildborn) in a stamped style to provide some visual variation with clear readability. The calendar typography is Lato, a highly readable sans-serif.
Proximity / Alignment
- Strong right alignment with pertinent information all with close proximity to allow the eye to remain focused on the design.
