This is a calendar project that I had in the college last year. The theme was bright, bold and beautiful. Only non-figurative elements were allowed to use in the project. So, I had chosen the gem stones as my study elements. By looking and playing with its refraction, I came out with gems display type for the calendar.
The images below are a few pages in the calendar. The colour of the typefaces for each month were chosen according to the colour of the birthstones. The shapes with gem stones' colour was for the gem-shaped origami.
It is very easy to cut, fold and stick the paper together to form the origami. The gem origami could be used as the decoration on the Christmas tree at the end of the year.
