Initially, my original calendar on the phone was so boring to use. The process was straining my fingers because it took me at least 6 minutes to get to the settings and change the date, type of reminder and alarm time yet it should only take a few seconds. By the time I am done setting up a reminder in the chosen month, I ask myself why i wasted my time so I am forced to use other methods to setup an important reminder. Even so the colour and theme of the calendar puts me off in using it often. It has shades of pale grey and black.
So i decided to redesign the overall navigation and theme of the calendar.
My intentions were to reduce the amount of time spent on setting up a reminder and to change the theme in the terms of the way type is seen so that I can use the calendar more often. I was inspired by the Apple Iphone calendar because of its simplicity so I created various visualizations for the month view, reminder view and the time view but the one that stuck out for me was the idea of using weather seasons to emphasize the month.
