12 Months, 365 Days in Mugs and Coasters at Japan's Calendar Salone 2011

Any format can be a platform for expression when used by a graphic designer.

Japan as many other developed countries has seen a fall in advertising, product packaging and all these sometimes glossy and glamorous ways graphic designers put their stamp on our imagination.

To fight the gloom and dearth of projects the Japan Graphic Designers Association or JAGDA organized Calendar Salone 2011 in Tokyo from February 18 to February 23rd.


The Japan Times shares images of some of the projects and reports that while one of them used a different mug to represent each day another conceived his calendar as a set of 12 coasters.

Necessity can make creativity bubble to the surface.

Let a 1000 calendar ideas bloom!

Mister Saumon and his Caporal, A Nice Little Loire Wine

Feb 25
As soon as I saw this little Loire wine, the Caporal by Mister Saumon in Husseau, the label made me thirsty for it. Jim's Loire in Frantz Saumon: Portes Ouvertes (June 2009) describes this Caporal (Montlouis Sec) as 'floral, hint of honey, purity and long mineral finish' A white wine it is, I believe 100% Chenin Blanc. Thanks to Stephane Poulart for sharing his label snapshot (above) with us all.
