Graphic designer Irwin Glusker’s minimalist black-and-white wall calendar offers a new way to visualize and think about the concepts of years, months and days. Emphasizing our connection to the moon, it encourages viewers to rethink the passage of time in terms of the rhythms of the night sky.
Function plays a large role in defining good design. When designers look at an object, they don't just consider its aesthetic appearance—they should also challenge it to be more versatile, to respond to the user's need, or to achieve its purpose more elegantly. Good design has the capacity to solve problems that sometimes we didn't even know we had. This is one of the ways design touches and enriches our everyday life.
