Maroon 5 Takes the Stage: May 2019 Design & Paper Spotlight

Let’s Get Literal (LGL) is a fun, interactive series of designs based on “literal” interpretations. LGL combines several things we love – music, design and creating campaigns that delight and engage people. This year’s calendar theme is BAND NAMES and/or ARTISTS. It’s up to the end-user to guess and then check their answers at LetsGetLiteral.com.

May was inspired by “This Love” Kathy has for the number 5!

  • Designer: Kathy O’Neal
  • Band Name: Maroon 5
  • Design Style: Typography  
  • Ink: Pantone 209 + Emboss
  • Paper: Keaykolour Cobblestone

Liner notes from Kathy

This love has taken its toll, on me, she said “it’s five” too many times before. Five is my lucky number and it’s also my birth month and date (happy Birthday de Mayo to me!) so it only made sense that I chose the band Maroon 5 for my calendar page! To showcase this, I wanted to focus my design entirely on the number five and opted for a simple, maroon colored five. Sometimes, the simpler – the better.

After selecting the perfect PMS color, I decided to emboss the five for a subtle punch. I’m really happy with how it turned out.

At the end of each month’s press run, we tossed in a stack of all 12 calendar paper colors for samples. Below shows what each month’s design looked like on Keaykolour Cobblestone.

A neutral, warm-gray sheet, the ink colors remained vibrant and dried fast. Take a break from all that white paper and give it a try!
