Travel Calendars

I am a digital nomad. This means I travel alot. Before my very first big overseas, multi-destination trip, my parents asked me to make them a calendar they could use as the background on their tablet devices. As a graphic designer, this task is super easy. So I made some backgrounds in Illustrator. I figured they need to know city and flight/bus details. I thought I would throw in the visual reference of flags.

The desktop size of my laptop is much greater and I really liked these calendars as a way of knowing where I was now, and what was coming up. I used the additional widescreen area to put some key photos (found on Google) that inspired me about visiting these locations.

This year when going on another long-extended multi-destination trip, I did the same travel calendars for friends and family. I was super glad to have made it easy to work with as I went through adding the new flags and locations. This time the trip was a lot slower so there is lots of duplication. (I walked 500km on the Camino de Santiago).

But at  the end of this trip, I had no home base to go back to and so many choices of my next adventure, I wasn’t sure how to express this. So I used fades and question marks.

The artboard in my Illustrator document has all the various goodies or elements to drag around as I need them. Super easy.

connecting to digital nomad community

Digital Nomad, Real life

I replied to a tweet from the digital nomad community. They asked to see photos of our work space for the day. Generally the images that go along with the hashtag digital nomad or remote worker show someone at the beach. This cannot be the reality.

It was really nice getting two likes and two retweets. Because I am working remotely, it is just me and my computer which tends to get lonely. It was nice to reach out to the community of other people working remotely and get some connection in return. I feel a little less alone in my choice to work alone.
