Pantone Calendar 2011 – Derek Bowers

If someone would like to buy me this Pantone chromatic wheel calender please feel free.  Derek Bowers has done a great job on it!

"My brief was to create a calendar for Pantone, the world-renowned authority on colour. The main aim for me was to make this calendar relevant on a global scale. With the colour wheel being universally recognised, I used this and combined it with a mosaic made up of 1440 different images to create my main graphic. Sticking with the whole worldwide idea, I have included many visual references to a host of different countries within the mosaic, and highlighted many of the main religious and cultural holidays throughout the year. To answer a question I have been asked a few times, no 'special software' was used to produce this. The grid was build in Illustrator and I placed all 1440 images by hand in (as close to as possible) some sort of colour order." - Derek Bowers

"Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of." - Charles Richards
