Created by legendary Italian designer Massimo Vignelli in 1966, the Stendig remains one of the best examples of 1960s modernist design, featuring two of the movement’s most iconic creations – Swiss typeface Helvetica and the Grid. Soon after launch, the calendar entered into the permanent collection of the MoMA, New York, where it remains on display to this day.

Vignelli’s design is simple yet bold, litho-printed on large 122x92cm sheets bound together by three hand-punched eyelets. The pages alternate in colour, with odd months laid out as black text on white, and even as white text on black. Sheets are detachable, designed to be removed at the end of each month. Previous months’ sheets make excellent wrapping paper.

Coming Soon

After fifty-six years, a design from the sixties endures as an example of excellence in modern graphic design. The Stendig Calendar was designed in 1966 by Massimo Vignelli and taken that year into the Design Collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

The Stendig Calendar's impressive size — three feet by four feet — and bold graphics have made it a popular as well as functional focal point of design in residential and commercial interiors around the world. Published annually by Cromwell Company, the Stendig Calendar is distributed through a variety of specialty retailers serving design conscious customers.

The Stendig Calendar consists of twelve sheets printed in black ink on white seventy pound weight offset paper stock. In an alternating order the sheets for even months are reverse printed producing a black background with white letters and numerals with odd months printed in black on white background. The twelve sheets are perforated along a line just under the binding strip to allow them to be torn away neatly.

The binding strip of the calendar has three matte black finish metal eyelets to facilitate easy hanging. Stendig Calendars are individually packaged in heavyweight bright white corrugated cartons allowing them to be safely shipped. Printed on the exterior of the cartons is a replica of the calendar and description.

Black, white and green! Both the calendar and its packaging are 100% recyclable.

Upcycle old sheets

Once the month is over, sheets can be detached from the calendar along a perforated seam that runs along the top. Previous months’ sheets make excellent wrapping paper — we recommend rolling them up and saving them for Christmas.

Space and scale

At the heart of the Stendig is a remarkable interplay between space and scale. At 122x92cm, it exceeds the typical size of a calendar, and is a feature of any room. Set within this are large Helvetica numerals that enumerate the days of the month.

The two digit dates are tightly and precisely kerned, such that the two characters just touch. The negative space left in and around these kissing numerals was of as much interest to Vignelli as the numbers themselves: the shape of the number 23, in particular, he considered graphic perfection.
