Geek Gods Calendar

Forget Greek gods - geeks have all the power in today's digital world.

Every year, Habari Media of South Africa creates a custom calendar. This year, to celebrate the rise of the geeks, it has created a bespoke letterpressed calendar, featuring twelve prominent leaders in design, media, and advertising as "Geek Gods."

The circular calendar features lunar phases, a nod to the Greek lunar calendar, and a manual dial that can be moved to mark the date. The calendar disc is engraved with markings that emulate the stone engravings of Greek tablets, and the individual month cards are letterpressed with graphic art like what you'd find on an ancient Greek amphora.

Each month of the calendar features a "god" modeled after real media personality and his or her expertise. For example, March 2013 features Moti Grauman, "God of Analysis" who is the "critical judge of hits and click-throughs" and November features Alan Buck, "God of Strategy" who is a "Game Plan Logician" and "Online Media Tactician." (Yes, that makes the most sense to insiders, but you get the cleverness.)
