Organized chaos is one thing, but that jumble of sticky notes you have cluttering your desk, computer, kids, cat…? Completely different story. Let us organize your hectic schedule and allow your creative genius to really shine with our beautifully minimalistic and completely customizable Big Picture Wall Calendar Template.

This template is incredibly versatile, so how you choose stay organized is up to you. Fill in your own dates and events (we like using color coordinated sticky notes). The template will arrive as a 40”x40” fully customizable vector file, along with a stunning and in-depth tutorial to help you along the way. With three backgrounds to choose from (or just use your own photo!), the layout options are endless. How you decide to print your new Big Picture Wall Calendar is also up to you: it translates beautifully as a metal print or fabric cling — or just throw it in frame and use dry erase markers over the glass. We’ve even hung up a few in our studio, as 40”x40” reusable wall clings. The calendars are almost completely transparent, so our white walls show through for a clean, beautiful finish.

We’re visual people, and so are you. Sure, your phone’s calendar app works great, but nothing beats an old fashioned calendar hanging on the wall. Prepare to be amazed by all the desk space you forgot you had.

the big picture planner: helping you succeed in 2014


Photographers from all over the world are raving about The Big Picture Planner:

“The Big Picture Planner is one of the most powerful comprehensive documents to use for my business, from being able to keep daily to do lists to tracking and managing my financial goals. I love that it was  ”plug and play.” I made no customizations and printed everything as-is and immediately started using it in my business. The financial investment and time investment is minimum when compared to what I know the payback will be. The Big Picture Planner helps me take my big goals/ideas and break them into easily attainable tasks, which as a “creative” can be difficult. Committing myself to using the Big Picture Planner as a daily part of my business will most definitely give me an edge in 2014. It’s like having my own business/marketing team. Thank you Design Aglow for once again creating a business tool, designed for the financial success of the photographer.” – Courtney Ortiz Photography
