FREE June 2017 calendar wallpaper + anniversaries and events

June is only starting and Society for News Design provides a calendar of events happening this month.

“The best that you can do” is the 2017 SND Year-Long Conversation to provide incentive and help designers worldwide to improve themselves, be more creative and to do their best designs in print and online, by thinking in advance some exciting projects and share them with SND community.

Any opportunity in the design department should be taken as a challenge for us to overcome our limits and to do our best and be more creative. Nowadays it is a great privilege to have a space in print or online where you can show your design and you should not lose this chance.

Download the June 2017 SND wallpaper created by JULIE M. ELMAN or download the 2017 full SND Calendar with the most important events of the year and of course SND events.

SHOWCASE is SND’s new space for designers to show their works in print and online. Be proud of your work and inspire others to be creative.
