We are about to release the sixth calendar we’ve created for Legistics. Instead of the divisions, anger and frustration of 2020, perhaps we can shift our focus to address some of the big concerns we all share.

After a year of being reactive, of struggling, of turning inward, we hope that 2021 will be a year of re-engagement. The pandemic has shown us that, without a doubt, we are all citizens of a tightly interconnected world — a world eager for us to work together to solve its most important problems.

In our 2021 calendar — with the help of eight talented artists, my co-designer Amy Crossan, and our writer Emily Hutta — we highlight some of those big issues in the hopes that we can maintain our focus, keep an eye on the future, and create a world we can proudly hand to our children and grandchildren.

Each month, we’ll post one of these beautiful images along with a bit of written context about each topic. We hope they inspire you as they have us.
