It is designed to offer a fluid, fast and fun way to have a glimpse at your daily schedule and can also be your on-the-go time management tool.
Peek is designed to add a human touch to the calendar experience. It provides users with the
necessary information in an easy to understand manner without being overwhelming.
Peek is not designed to be another smart calendar suitable only for power users. It is made to
address the needs of a bigger group of people that simply need to manage time on the go,
without being overloaded by unnecessary information and features.
The design approach with Peek is very simple, we wanted Peek to be an experience that is more aligned with what we need and want on the go instead of our needs and wants being dictated by technology. The design is guided by four core values. These values are derived from the demands and aspirations of the user and are used to define the Peek calendar experience.
- Only the detail you need:
Peek is about cutting away the overwhelming features of mobile calendars. It redefines an on the go experience for people to use when they need it, so that they are not consumed by its entirety and benefit from its existence.
Peek is not just a minimalist and simple app, it is designed to be the right resolution for the context it is being used in. It is made to provide the necessary information in an easy to understand manner, without overwhelming you with data you might not need.
- Functionality as you need it:
We wanted Peek to be quick and simple to use. We believe the experience would be more desirable when we give people what they need not everything we can provide. Peek is not trying give too much to the user, instead it manages the complexity by layering the information so people get what they need more quickly and easily.
It can be used for taking a glimpse into your day, or could be your on-the-go tool for performing time management when needed.
- Content focused
We believe interfaces can be more about the content. It is the content that shapes the interface components. These components have behaviour and work together to create an environment where users experience the product.
Focusing on the content makes the conventional navigational elements less visible and using gestural control allows the design to be cleaner, quieter and more ambient. This can actually speed up the process of using calendar.
- Natural and playful
Instead of using the conventional navigational elements, Peek introduces new behaviors and natural interactions that are more fun and intuitive to use.
There is an element of play in Peek. We believe that fun does not have to be less functional. Life can be busy and sometimes stressful, why not manage it in a slightly more playful way. Peek is designed to offer a fluid, fast and fun way to get a glimpse at your daily schedule.
