Ink Calendar by Oscar Diaz

Here is an interesting idea for a calendar by Oscar Diaz. The ink is absorbed slowly, and the numbers in the calendar are “printed” daily. One a day, they are filled with ink until the end of the month. Each month has another color, the colors range from dark blue in December to, three shades of green in spring or orange and red in the summer.

It’s an original idea that I have never seen before. And it involves something that everyone is using every day. Calendars are one of the oldest concepts that people came up with. At first we were able to tell time by the position of the sun and then someone came up with the idea of creating a calendar, a structure that helps us keep track of time. Everyone uses them regardless of the type.

The most common type of calendar is the one that usually hangs on the wall where everybody can see it. And this one is more or less based on the same principles, although it’s a lot more attractive. Still, as beautiful and interesting as it may be, it still takes a lot of space that not everybody has. But you can’t have it all.
