So I took a Human-Computer-Interaction course, and the final assignment involved a challenge of using digital tools to change how we perceive/work with time. After a few User interviews with folks about how they use their digital calendars, I came up with this basic prototype for a more visual calendar experience. The basic idea is that a digital calendar should be able to give you as much information as possible in the shortest time possible - "at a glance." And what's the most important information for you to know about scheduled events? What time they start and stop, of course, but also what level of priority it is, and how much effort/time you need to put in in advance to be ready for it? If it's really important, it's literally taller on the app. Maybe it's a massive project that will take months of work (red). Or maybe it's an appointment to chat, and all you have to do is show up (blue). One look at the app should tell you how much you really need to worry about whatever you put on your calendar - and if you're seeing a whole lot of "red" - then you probably need to slow way down. It's still far from usable, but click around, add some events, and see what you think.
