on workspaces.

IMG_0939Public is one of my favorite words, especially when it comes to creative workspaces and getting stuff done. Some people need to be alone when they work, but I am not that kind of person. When I need a fresh burst of creativity for a particular project, or have a blog post that needs finishing (or starting), I have to get out of the house.

This week I came across a new-to-me coworking company called WeWork. For a monthly membership fee, they offer access to super cool common workspaces and free coffee, among other features. Sort of like the fitness club I used to go to, except with desks instead of elliptical trainers.

calendar | free printable

 A couple of weeks ago I felt like designing a calendar for the new year. So I did. Then I felt like sharing it. So here it is, available for you to download and print if you’d like! I made it really simple- just a new photo [of San Francisco] every month, large opaque numbers to write over instead of boxes, and plenty of room for notes.

If your printer will print full bleed, definitely do that, because that’s the look I was trying to achieve. Mine won’t, so I just printed it at 100% and trimmed the edges (about ⅛” on each side) with a paper cutter. You can put it in a frame and write on the glass with a dry-erase marker, or print it on nice paper and hang it up. I hope you like it! (P.S. September is my favorite month on this calendar.)
