A Design Award Winner DIY Calendar – Design You Trust

A Design Award Winner DIY Calendar


A calendar with no rules and a playful usage for users to personalize.


Having won some of the most important (international) design awards, such as a Graphis Gold and now an European Design Award, this BITRI’s DIY (Do It Yourself) calendar is all about freedom and a lot of writing. It can be used both as a calendar and a diary, giving the user the freedom to select each day as many pages as he wishes. The stickers indicate the day of the month and can be applied anywhere on the page, allowing the user to write around it. The main objective with this project was to develop a do-it-yourself object, one that can be built differently by each user and personalised as desire.”


The DIY consists in a box of paper, using high quality materials, that embraces and reveals a book with blank pages. “The calendar doesn’t have a beginning or an end”, explains BITRI’s art director Eduardo Aires, “because the stickers mark the rhythm of the relationship between the user and the book, making each one a unique piece”. This calendar was also awarded in the USA last February with a Graphis gold.




BITRI is a special brand that especialises in exquisite and luxurious objects, all conceptualised and designed in-house. BITRI is based in Porto, Portugal, and managed by the designer Eduardo Aires.
