HNY! A round-up of the best creatives’ calendars we’ve seen

With the new year comes a plethora of calendar opportunities, with even Russian president Vladimir Putin getting involved with snaps that see him sniffing leaves, fishing and holding puppies close to his face. Elsewhere, creatives far and wide have sent in their take on the calendar tradition. This year they range from drawings of Lisa Simpson, encouraging mantras and laser­cut patterns to characterful sponges and daily mood faces.
