A Pin-Up Calendar for the New Year (NSFW, maybe)

re:design 2013 Calendar IntroductionSome things have been happening. Like, the end of the world did not come and so a new year is upon  us. Also, Fifty Shades of Grey is the bestselling novel ever despite hardly being a novel at all, what with no plot and no sense whatsoever and the heart-wrenchingly bad writing. Also, we’ve been spending hours on stock photography sites for various not-so-exciting projects. We blame today’s entry on all of that.

So, have you ever tried to find a stock photo for an ad of a real estate developer or a mattress seller? It goes something like this: you type in a seemingly neutral term, say “chess” or “chair” and… behold the plethora of barely dressed ladies (I use the term broadly) making sweet sweet love to the chess or chair. Or next to it. Or under it. Sometimes the chair is not even in the picture.

We do a lot of stock searches and every now and then we come upon pictures so horrid they are almost good. For a while we’ve been putting these photos into a special folder called Oddities and finally decided to share the goodness. This is the short story behind our 2013 calendar.

Please, feel warned. What follows after the jump is vulgar and inelegant. But, full disclosure, it was much more fun to work on than the legitimate projects we started from. (Also, none of the photos qualify as actual porn, with all the naughty bits covered, so don’t worry and please don’t flag us.)

re:design Presents: 2013 Calendar for PimpsEach calendar page illustrates one holiday that happens in the particular month. Some of the holidays are more bizarre than others but all are real, at least according to the Internet. The exact day of the holiday is marked in color (not that you really came here to see when World Cat Day happens).

The sexism or vulgarity, or simply bad taste of these is an entirely different matter which you may or may not reflect upon.

However, if you prefer action to reflection, below you’ll find a button which will take you to Dropbox site where you can download the calendar for printing on your home printer or placing on your desktop. Whether you do it ironically or not, hey, we won’t even know. (The link will be active till 2013-03-01.)

And now:

Happy New Yaer from re:design!

See you in 2013, which we’ll probably start by showing you more serious calendars, and have a great evening.
