    Hi, my name is Harald. I am a typographer based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The Typographic Wall Calendar is a project I've been working on since 2009. Visit the project on Kickstarter.com → http://kck.st/2000and12 Or on my website → http://haraldgeisler.com What do other people say about the Typographic Wall Calendar? “…stunning reinterpretation of a calendar is a masterful example of how a designer can completely flip a genre signifier on its head. Geisler reimagines calendars in order to change the way we visualize time, and in turn, redefines what it means to save the date.” Mike McGregor, Kickstarter, NYC “…one-of-a-kind…” Armin Vit, Quipsologies (former Speak Up) Vol.47 No.60, Austin TX “…my heart went all a-flutter.” Blair Pfander, Sundance Channel, Brooklyn "…simple, effective, straightforward, yet dizzying…” Xiaoli Li, Formatmag “…der minutiöse Wahnsinn, …(der) eher an J. Johns oder einen sehr disziplinierten J. Pollock erinnert als an deinen normalen Wandkalender.” 
 Hans Schumacher, slanted.de / projektgrafik.de, Berlin “Creative of the week” 
 Gerrie Smits, The RAAKonteur #20, London “…staggering image…” 
 Erik Brandt, geotypografika.com, Minneapolis “It’s a completely unique project, and both an expensive and huge undertaking…” 
Jamie Homer, flush-left.co.uk, UK “…thought intrigued…” 
 Idealog Weekly,idealog.co.nz, New Zealand “…ambitiøse…” 
 Thomas Arendt, blog.makeyourmark.dk, Denmark
 “…perfekte Tastenkombination für das kommende Jahr.” 
 Publique, itspublique.de, Germany “…amazing…” 
 Andrew Dobrow, Geektoplasm “…unique DIY…” 
 Abby Jenkins, Apartment Tharapy Unpluggd, US “…This is calendar ART. This is art that is a CALENDAR…”

One week before New Year’s the remaining prints went out to friends and clients. The response was overwhelming. People called up and said that they wanted to buy more or that they had already framed it. In 2010 we decided to turn the project into a Kickstarter campaign →kck.st/20eleven. The response was again very positive. After a successful campaign with 205% funding, we shipped over 90 calendars to people all over the globe. The "2012 Typographic Wall Calendar" is a project to produce a large (70cm x 100cm / 27.56in x 39.37in) printed wall calendar for the year 2012. The calendar is made of two-thousand and twelve used keyboard keys. The keys are arranged manually to write out all days of the year 2012.

                    www.themaneveryonehated.com Hello everyone, this is a trailer made to help raise money for the feature film The Man Everyone Hated. It's supposed to give you a general idea of the story and the atmosphere of the film. The Man Everyone Hated is a low-budget exploitation film about Henry May.
