Five Metal Shop Calendar Project 2020

Product Description

The Calendar Project by Five Metal Shop is an experiment to see how an almost obsolete object with a quiet cultural significance might be brought back made relevant again in a modern context by using modern printing, papers, illustrations and design. For the 2020 Calendar, FMS team rethought the design trying to resonate with the old calendar typology. chose a colour palette inspired by Taiwan local surroundings and objects such as neon green and pink often seen on Taiwanese puppet-show stage put on around local temples, the purple shade we often remember on grandma’s shirts, and the blue pick-up truck in almost every merchant households and factories. The typefaces were carefully tweaked to remind people of the traditional calendar and modified to fit today’s requirements. The dates of the lunar calendar and 24 solar terms have been kept because they were the most important factors that our grandfathers traditionally referred to everyday.  The Calendar was carried by more than 20 retailers among Asia, from Korea, Hong Kong to Malaysia. Besides sales, it was also awarded by Shopping Design, the most iconic design magazines in Taiwan, as one of the Best Design of 2017. And 2018 was selected by Monocle magazine. Packaging: The packaging of 2020 calendar, inspired by a daily grocery bag, is a shopping bag made from Tyvek (a tough, recyclable, paper-like material by DuPont) printed with neon and metallic pattern. Thus, there will be no box for 2020. Gift: As you can see the attached images, we designed two kinds of keychain as gifts for 2020: [A] cool as ice cream / [B] hello, superstar : ). You can allocate different kinds by yourself.
