Constantly inspired by functional, minimal and organizational design, I’ve designed several calendars + planners over the years for clients and myself alike. The hangup? The tremendous production work involved in creating a yearly, monthly or daily planner in Adobe InDesign.

After researching forums and tutorials to no end, I finally discovered the solution to setting up a calendar template with InDesign, ready to automate in seconds for each upcoming year.

Rather than holding onto this efficient solution for myself, I’ve created a mini-class walking you through how to design + automate your own planner with InDesign.

Whether you sell organizational planners in your shop, or are like me and prefer to design your own personal printable calendar each year, this class is for you!

“I learned some game-changing tips in the Designing Calendar course, many in the very first setup lesson. It was wonderful to have an easy to follow video series that I could build right along with you. It took me a just a few hours to get to done, but I’m so pleased with the result.”
