Ollibird's Free iPhone Calendar

Uncategorized

Today is my THIRTIETH birthday and as a gift to YOU, Mike and I are excited to offer a free 2011 calendar for your iPhone! Check out how cool you can be:

Here’s how it works:

1) Download the zipped file right here: Ollibird 2011 iPhone calendar

2) Get the files onto your iPhone in whatever way you like best (I personally hate syncing my iPhone and just find it easier to email myself the images and save all to my Saved Photos).

3) Each month, set the appropriate image as your wallpaper for your lock screen only (in my opinion, these images won’t work well as the background of your home screen).

That’s it! If you want to know a little bit about how this came together, here it is:

Every year I have a goal to make a calendar, and due to awesome clients who kept me very very busy this fall, I wasn’t able to do a new calendar (of course, I’m not counting the planners that I do for FranklinCovey). But the idea hit me yesterday that I could do a quick calendar for the iPhone! I used Mike’s amazing watercolor animals from our 2009 calendar and paired them with a great new font (Monroe) that my brother gave me for my birthday (some people don’t even understand why I would even WANT fonts for my birthday…) and the rest is yours to enjoy!

If you’re interested in learning how to do stuff like this yourself, by the way, don’t forget that Mike and I offer online classes and textbooks in Illustrator and Photoshop, starting at the beginning level! And they’re all on sale right now for Christmas. Check them out!
