Five Metal Shop Calendar Project 2022


A calendar that makes each day counts.


We do not provide guide for your life, please kindly use each sheet/day as you wish.

我們並不提供人生指南,請任意對待每一張紙 / 每一天。

A beloved, unique calendar which combined the traditional Chinese calendar with modern design.

The Calendar Project by Five Metal Shop is an experiment project started from 2016, to explore how the calendar, something that becoming obsolete yet with a quiet cultural significance could be brought back and made it relevant again with a modern context, such as modern printing, papers, illustrations and design.

The typefaces were carefully tweaked to remind people of the traditional calendar and modified to fit today’s requirements. Traditionally, the Chinese calendar is used to determine the days of traditional festivals. It still serves as a daily guide with tips until today in most Asian society, such as indications of good days for moving, farming and ploughing, getting married and so on. The dates of the lunar calendar and 24 solar terms have been kept because they were the most important factors that our grandfathers traditionally referred to everyday.

Tearing off a page after each day ends is a typology unique in Asia. This calendar is designed with perforated line as a tear off calendar, which you can tear down each page day-by-day easily. After tearing the pages off, you can store them in the beautify printed box, or to repurpose them for your creative projects, such as adorning your pages or outgoings. 

We hope this calendar will let designs enrich our everyday lives.
