Creative Spotlight: Thirteen Moons Inspires New Calendar
Rice Creative releases their take on the traditional lunar calendar
The traditional Vietnamese calendar carries significant weight. It’s used to plan weddings, when to sign a contract, or whether or not to move home. Fascinated by this, and the way metaphysical forces are said to impact on each and every day - making it unique - not to mention their obsession with typeface design and what they call the ‘expressive’ numerals used in old Vietnamese books, Rice Creative have produced this new, traditional calendar for your desktop.
‘A year with thirteen moons -,’ begins the box, ‘this is not a usual calendar, but 2017 is not a usual year. According to the lunar calendar, there will be thirteen months this year. The contrasts between the lunar calendar, and the usual Gregorian calendar is the insistence that each day is effected by forces and therefore different.’
