If time flies when you're having fun, you might as well extend that notion to the moments spent organizing your time. For our annual calendar round-up this year, we've included 16 shining examples that will ensure all of 2015 is just how you envisioned it.

Multidisciplinary artist Bradley Pitts likes to "restore science and technology to a place where they can be used to investigate philosophical questions and subjective realities." With both a bachelors and masters degree in aeronautics from MIT, Pitts is more than qualified to achieve such a task, and his Yearlight calendar is evidence of such. The poster-sized calendar neatly displays the amount of daylight, twilight, darkness and moonlight for each day of 2015, and can be customized for any specific location in the world. ($50)

Budding typophiles can spend the year getting friendly with some of the world's most intriguing fonts with Workman Publishing's Just Type wall calendar. The year starts off with Akzidenz-Grotesk (which sounds a lot like how most people feel in January), spruces up in May with Script, and expresses the boldness of fall with Bauhaus in November—with many more in between. ($14)

Oakland, California-based designer Chelsea Dyer distills the 12 monthly birthstones down to a simplified science with a 2015 Stones calendar. From Peridot to Topaz, Dyer connects each month to its symbolic color, neatly illustrates the stone's geometric structure and provides its scientific formula among other useful information. ($22)

For those wishful for a green thumb this year or those who love to fill every bit of space with succulents, 2015 House Plants might be a match. The postcard-format calendar features charming illustrations of life's verdant companions and comes with a small easel for a handy desktop display. ($20)

Top London stationery and ephemera shop Present & Correct has teamed up with Monocle for a handsome annual desk calendar in a mellow but eye-catching yellow. Each month is displayed on a letterpress card, which all together rest on an oak stand, made in the USA. ($83)

Copenhagen design studio and concept store Playtype applies Scandinavian minimalism to a range of goods; mugs, scarves and more. Their Calendar Poster is offset printed on 120g uncoated paper and typed in their own sans serif Italian Plate No2 font. ($36)

Enter the dreamy world of London-based illustrator Donna Wilson with her handwritten cloud-shaped calendar. The seasonally themed design is small but sweet, with room to write down important dates. ($30)

Originally created for MoMA in 1987, the brilliantly colorful Perpetual Calendar by celebrated Israeli designer Dan Reisinger is just as covetable today. The genius of his interactive design allows you to create different compositional arrangements for more than 40,000 days. ($78)

The talented Melbourne-based artist Georgia Perry tackles the year at large with a wire-bound, 12-month wall calendar of her designs, complete with a bright, bold illustration for each month that's sure to get some positive feelings flowing. ($25)

In 2009, artist Matt W Moore sent his yearly calendar to CH HQ, and we've been fans of his colorful work ever since. For the 2015 MMW Graphics calendar, Moore has created a brand new collection of custom typographic explorations in his signature "vectorfunk" style. ($39)

Online publication Art F City takes a more subversive view on art, so it's no surprise that their calendar is equally provocative. Each month, Nude Artists as Pandas reveals an artist in the buff—dressed as a panda. But, better yet, the Art F City calendar includes a list of all the major art events happening in 2015, so you can plan a year's worth of cultural escapades. ($50)

In 2002, Tate Modern asked revered London design consultancy Graphic Thought Facility to create a perennial calendar, and naturally it's a timeless work of art in and of itself. The Tate Modern Perpetual features 24 postcards with months, dates and works from the museum's permanent collection on them, for endless fun with art. ($34)

Kristina Krogh’s poster-sized 2015 calendar will capture your attention from across the room with its bold typography, and pull you in closer to reveal its delicate monthly details. The Danish graphic designer's calendar explores contrast seamlessly with deep, dark greens and embossed gold foiling, printed in Copenhagen on high-quality white paper. ($65)

"Once time is visible, it might be possible to actually use time the way we’d like, instead of saying, 'There goes another year!'" With their One Year Wall Calendar, Tokyo-based Postalco hopes to help you make the most of 2015. The simple design measure 57 x 46 cm and features Japanese holidays. ($9)

We repeatedly looked to Crispin Finn's large-scale year planner to decorate our walls and keep us well-organized, but for those short on space, the creative London duo has issued a Folding Calendar that's just as festive but packs a smaller punch. Though totally functional for work, take note that here, weekends are underlined. ($24)

Brooklyn-based fashion designer Mary Meyer is known for her distinctive textiles, which for 2015, she has lent to paper for an abstract wall calendar. Meyer's tribal-inspired designs make up each month in striking black and white, with works dating back to 2009. ($25)
