2014 Design Capital of the World, a stroll through the city and 2014 calendars

June 20, 2013 · Print This Article

Cape Town was voted 2014 Design Capital of the World. As the date draws nearer it got us thinking more about what it all means. So one afternoon we took our camera and started from our shop at the top of the city and strolled down to the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) on the Foreshore.

Well, even as locals who walk these streets every day and without even really understanding what they mean by “design”, we were blown away by how it all unfolded in front of us. Architecture, creative use of space, modern and traditional décor pieces in hotels and walk ways, gardens and fountains – too many to describe. A creative process seems to permeate most structures and public spaces in the City which before we had taken for granted. Cape Town is truly a beautiful City and is well deserving of the 2014 Design Capital of the World title (and we haven’t yet ventured outside the City Bowl).

Having snapped away we have a collection of wonderful images of different things, we decided these will form the theme of our 2014 calendar that we print and distribute to our customers. For those unfamiliar with it, our calendar is a desk-top tent calendar with a separate page for each month.

Let Minuteman Press assist you with your calendar printing for 2014

You could also have your own personalised 2014 calendars; be it an individual layout as a gift for family and friends, or a larger run for your business or company as a promotional item for your customers. There are several styles and sizes to choose from. Another desk-top option specifically for individual runs, besides tent calendars, are individual months that are printed and set up in a CD cover that opens out as a display unit. Or you may prefer us to design and print wall hanging calendars. Bring your own designs, or just images you want that we can work into our calendar templates. Even if it is a specific idea that you would like graphic design assistance with before printing, we will be glad to assist.

Don’t leave it too late. Before you know it year end will be upon us and you would have wanted to distribute your calendars already! Contact us today for all your calendar printing needs
