Design Feature: March Desktop Calendar

Our Monthly Design Feature Is Back with Fresh Greens, Soft Pastels, and Plenty of Inspiration

“Beware the ides of March!” “When March comes in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb.” “March winds and April showers bring forth May flowers.” “Mad as a March hare.” “March Madness.” Why does March get such a bad rap? Well, we are putting a stake in the ground and saying, “No more!” This month’s Design Feature is not one, not two, but three desktop calendars from graphic designer Alyssa Alaimo guaranteed to put March in its place.

“I was excited to see that green was my color!” Alyssa said. “It’s [the] first color that I think of when I think of spring and [the] so-called spring months in Indiana. Everyone dreams of seeing green those months following their past dreams of a white Christmas!”

We love the fresh visualization on spring. Alyssa even broke out the watercolors and incorporated soft spring pastels. “Color is a bit of fresh air during the months awaiting those warmer days, so I decided to break out my watercolor paints and use a palette within the calendars that not only incorporated various shades of green, but also spring pastels, bold oranges, and vibrant pinks,” she explained. “I guess you could say pretty hues and the thought of warmer months ahead were my inspiration behind the March calendars—especially as I sit here bundled up watching snow fall.”

What I love about this series we have going on is that our design team is so diverse and talented that we are getting a ton of design applications. We’ve had photography, graphic design, illustrations, watercolor, and, in a few months, we’ll even weave in vintage wallpaper. If there was a way to incorporate video on a desktop image, I’m sure it would be covered.
