| This month at Canvas Corp Brands design team headquarters, we were given an assignment to design a project that would compliment an existing product line. It could be any product line from a toy company to home furnishings.|
My husband and I are planning a big move to another apartment and I was browsing the Ikea gallery the other day. I really liked one of their rooms. Just about everything is in shades of grey, including the Kvarnvik box series. These boxes come in several shapes and are covered with interlaced paper string that looks just like the grey burlap fabric from Canvas Corps.
I decided to make a calendar, with the base covered in the grey burlap and a dodecahedron calendar sitting on the base. In this tutorial, we will draw the template for the dodecahedron calendar in IllustratorR.
Dodecahedrons have twelve sides, one for each month, and each side is a pentagon shape. So let's start with the pentagon. As I usually do, I drew the complete dodecahedron template in pieces. Once I got that perfected, I used it as a guide to draw a clean cut line that will become the SVG cut file. Our calendar will be about 4 inches in size.
