FoodLuck Calendar

FoodLuck Calendar is based on an imagined persona as an indecisive and superstitious food lover. Inspired by superstition in Cantonese food culture and Huang Calendar, the traditional Chinese calendar indicating the dos and don’ts for each day, I created this calendar to find the daily lucky food.

The design integrates traditional patterns, papercuts, and colors from Cantonese culture. It balances the classic vernacular Cantonese aesthetic and a modern international style through a combination of literal illustrations of foods and the papercut patterns that are transformed from them. The calendar is printed out in a paper roll to indicate the ongoing time.
