simple, structured, up-to-date, artistic
The calendar was made according to marketing, social media, self-advertising theories and adapted to artistic environment. A book "Reputation Economy" by Michael Fertik was a very good source for the Calendar content as well.
To main challenge was to create a calendar that could help in building career for a specific group - artists. The second big challenge was that this work had to be very structured, simple, up-to-date and artistic, not a cliche.
