When one wants to know the date, one only has to look at a calendar. Many look at a calendar but only a few really see it. There are a lot of things that have to be taken into account. A calendar is so much more than just a piece of paper that hangs on the walls and holds the dates. Even though telling of the date is important it is also significant to note that card making for the calendar 2011. A calendar is so much more than just a piece of paper or just a piece of cardboard. It is a compendium of art, design and detail, so much more than people give it credit for.
What to prepare for
When card making a calendar 2011, there are quite a few things to prepare for. The theme is one of the most important things to think about when creating the calendar 2011. A theme sets the concept of everything and the design and art follows the theme throughout the production process. A calendar 2011 is also created by putting art, design and function together. It must still serve its purpose for telling the date to be called a calendar and one cannot simply go wild with artistic license ad this calendar still has to serve its purpose as a calendar 2011.
The creation process itself
The creation process also known as card making should enter quite a few stages before reaching the printing press. The design should be created and if there are any production requirements like photo shoots, they should be properly planned and done ahead of time. Not all material from the photo shoot is going to make it into the final calendar itself, more often than not it is 5% of material that makes its way into the final design. The card making process also includes processes like editing and graphic enhancement as no picture can always be perfect every time.
Form and design
One other important aspect of the card making process would be the design and form of the fonts being used. A calendar should always contain the dates and the numbers that are to be written must still serve their purpose. This must also adhere to the overall theme of the calendar itself and it also must be able to blend with the overall art within the calendar. This overall should account for a create a fully functional work of art and should not be ignored by all who gaze upon it.
