Free Stuff Fridays

I love beautiful design. Though I’m no longer a web designer, I still find myself crawling around the Web at times, looking for examples of beautiful and inspiring design. I came across just such a thing a few years ago in the NeuYear calendar. It begin its life as a Kickstarter project and, once fully funded, came to life. I ordered one as soon as I could and can testify that it’s everything it’s cracked up to be. I’m all about clean and minimal design and this calendar is just that.


After I ordered a calendar, Jesse Phillips, the entrepreneur behind the project, got in touch to say that he has been known to hang around my blog and that he’d love to give away some calendars to the readers of the site. I’ve done that the past few years, and I’m doing it again today. The NeuYear is now available in various forms, and you will be able to choose the one you want–paper or dry erase, Sunday-first or Monday-first, color or grayscale.

TallWhat’s special about the NeuYear calendar? First, it’s big, which means you can see the whole year at a glance. Second, it’s gapless, which means that it’s more of a year-by-week than a year-by-month kind of calendar (which appeals to me since weeks are more meaningful to my workflow than months). Third, it’s beautiful; it’s just a great design. And fourth, it’s 2 calendars in 1 since the one side has the calendar in horizontal format and the other has it in the vertical format.

    We Need Qualified Leadership

    A few days ago I happened upon the page of an especially mega-sized megachurch. The church is about to undergo a leadership transition from an older man to a younger one and a page on the site lays out the process through which this new pastor was chosen. I read with a morbid kind of…

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God. The man who quits drugs will still react when he catches a whiff and the woman who gave up alcoholism will still struggle when…
