2018-2019 Liturgical Calendar - Year of Faith Featured Artist
It is an honor to be collaborating with Tricia Dugat of Providential Co. on the 2018-2019 Year of Virtue Liturgical Calendar! Tricia's work is a great fit for this family-inspired resource because of her playful use of color and her approachable illustrations. My kids are already drawn to the final proofs they have seen me working on; I can't wait to get the final calendar up on the wall for them to experience throughout the year.
If you have not heard of Providential Co., read on and then go check it out! If you are familiar with her work, you will recognize a few of the images and be delighted to find a few newer images!
From the moment I met Tricia, I felt like I had known her for a long time! We met in person at Edel 2017, but had been online friends for a few months prior to the event. I appreciate that Tricia and I are both adult converts to Catholicism who desire to use our interests in graphic design to spread the Good News and the beauty of our faith. Tricia's attention to detail, her eye for color, and her craftsmanship combine for a unique spin on traditional iconography. She utilities simple symbols, intentional shapes, and a fresh palette to emphasize the story within each image.
With the new design of our monthly liturgical wall calendar, we decided to simplify by focusing on one Catholic artist this year. In addition the artwork, we have also added spaced for your own daily notes, a focused verse, a monthly prayer, a focused virtue and corresponding craft idea each month.
Our mission to design modern calendars for a timeless faith pairs well with Tricia's mission to serve you and God's truth with distinctive design and materials.
