Being Creative: Marisa's Calendar Card

26th June

For my sister Marisa's 30th birthday I was inspired to make a card showing that 30 isn't really so old. I wrote some Windows (MFC) code to render calendar pages from 1974 through to 2004. I wanted it to fit on a page (or card) so I designed a very small layout scheme -- each day is a 4x4 pixel square. I had to make some similarly tiny "fonts" to annotate the years, months and days-of-the-week (no room for day-of-the-month numbers). It worked out quite well. When you see 30 years (10959 days) like this it really doesn't seem like much.
