Hand-drawn Inspiration Making Your Own Calendar

Calendars are some times necessary as a part of UX. How they work with a product can be a challenge, and everyone uses them differently. Usually it’s best to be as simple, and as custom as possible to suit the needs of the product. Like any feature, even calendars, sketching helps define how to solve this problem. But I never really thought about drawing my own calendar on paper as a UX experiment. 

Rather than use a digital calendar system, or even a printed calendar, Craig Mod did just that. Craig drew his own monthly calendar to help him to address things in his life that he wanted to track better, enhance and make more productive. 

Like any kind of problem, defining it, writing and drawing it, then focusing on it over time can yield better results, or at least some new and useful insights.
