DESIGN DETAILS

WWF Calendar

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Promotion notebook

INSPIRATION:
From 1985 to 2016 WWF has been reaching the far corners of the country and now having its 35th anniversary. In 2017 for the new calendar design Nan Zhou used Chinese dye ink technique that brings the viewer unexpectedly in and out of reality. In China 2017 is the year of the rooster and has a meaning of great luck. The rooster significance reminded him of a picture he drew of a bird looking over its back in childhood. Slightly standing out from the cover this interesting memory is now left on the calendar cover.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The calendar design is done in traditional Chinese way which includes the use of ink and calligraph. The special feature is the faint color of hieroglyphs that has a magical feeling of yin and yang. It brings a very special relaxed feeling to the whole design. Being accepted by WWF was unexpected as minimum explanations and comments was given for the design features.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The WWF calendar notebook design used a traditional Chinese design feeling. Natural. Free digital writing. It contains reminders of the twenty-four solar terms 24 solar seasons, important environmental protection days, as well as used the most important action records of the volunteers. Thus making the calendar very practical and as well as having an indistinct pattern of beauty.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in November 2016 and finished in December 2016. WWF started to use new calendar in January 2017 up to December 2017.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
WWF now having its 36th anniversary. Its main theme is In China be together. The calendar design with its traditional Chinese features was drawn by art director Nan Zhou. In 2017 for the new calendar design he used Chinese dye ink technique. The special feature is the faint color of hieroglyphs. In China 2017 is the year of the rooster and has a meaning of great luck. The rooster significance reminded him of a picture he drew of a bird looking over its back in childhood. It now embossed on calendar cover.

CHALLENGE:
The WWF calendar has been a continuing design challenge. Now its about how to improve over last year design and make the new one even better. Last year Nan Zhou used a dye ink technique which left white spaces to deliver a more direct comparison and create a more imaginary artistic conception. But this year is a new challenge for him.
