Planning for 2011: Printable Calendar Edition

Writing the words “planning for 2011” almost sent me in a tailspin… seriously, two thousand eleven, really?!

Whether you want to admit it or not, 2011 is almost upon us. This means that the creative minds around the world are creating calendars of all shapes and sizes. I had the pleasure (sarcasm) of converting a calendar from a previous year at my first design job. In case you can’t picture it, that involved me moving formatted numbers 1 position left and researching obscure holidays to confirm where they needed to sit on the calendar. Ever since that fun adventure I’ve had a HUGE appreciation for the effort that goes into calendars, so….

Here are some awesome printable calendars for 2011

In general, we’re trying to fit our tasks into continuous days of work that cross month boundaries; by running all the days together, we can maintain that sense of continuity and still not lose track of what month it is.
