Att planera, markera och dokumentera tid
For a long time I have felt that there is a lack of time planning products on the market that attracts me to use them. Therefore I wanted to explore the possibilities of developing something that I really wanted to use. At first I tried to come up with a more general tool for planning and structuring time, different from the products that are already available. But soon I found it more interesting to see myself as the primary user. This way I felt that I could experiment more and I didn’t have to take things like production, cost and possible target groups into consideration. As I set out with an aim to try and understand my own problems with planning and structuring time the project became a very personal one. This made the project take a turn away from being very product oriented. Instead the project grew to be something that was no longer only dealing with planning time but also changing my understanding of what my creative process really is about. In my work I have been dealing with these subjects through graphic design and typography. I have explored and experimented with different kinds of tools for planning, marking and documenting time. Working with different formats as well as moving between different time spans I have tried to find something that is interesting and useable for me in my everyday life. During the project I have broadened my perspective on the creative process and how I approach a problem with design as the tool to solve it.
