The new year is almost here, so you know what that means—new calendars!
New 2017 calendar designs are here.
Every year talented graphic designers work their you-know-whats off designing creative new calendar designs for the upcoming year. Creating a theme for a set of 12 months is one of the most challenging but fulfilling creative exercises. The best part is seeing how creative designers get with their solutions for displaying the month, days and other important elements of the calendar, while still keeping it functional.
To celebrate the coming of the holidays and the end of the year, I have compiled some of the most stunning 2017 calendar designs from around the web. Check out these awesome designs below for some inspiration and feel free to link to any cool 2017 calendar designs you have created for the new year.
Creative 2017 Calendar Designs
Food and seasons are intrinsically linked and thus a great way to illustrate each month. Bobby chose to illustrate his 2017 calendar design with each season’s produce.
This simple calendar from Camille reminds me of the art of Henri Matisse. Simple but effective.
Most of the calendars I’ve seen have complex and elaborate designs but Dariia chose a flat and modern design using mountains and changing seasons.
Shunsuke’s animal illustrations fit well with the calendar’s color and layout. Whimsical.

This minimalist calendar features handwritten month names. But the choice of font coupled with the script works for anyone who wants simple and elegant.
Aishwarya’s calendar features trivia from her beautiful country of India, perfect for travel plans all year round.
G Sze Mean cites life in the big city in her calendar. Using colorful buildings partnered with script calendar design, she wants to remind people of the beauty of cities.
Birth Stones 2017 by songhee cho
Another stunning use of calligraphic font on calendars. This time, Songhee Cho used the birthstones of each month as the theme for her calendar.
I seldom see pastel illustrations in calendar design. Zen’s coffee theme reminds me to measure the year in coffee cups and spoons.
Hedi’s gorgeous calendar includes more than 30 hand-painted illustrations of vegetables, fruits, animals and garden tools and is nothing short of beautiful.
I hope you are inspired to create your own designs and maybe even print your own calendars. Here’s to the coming New Year!
