In China, most of people have the deposit habit. As less people use traditional paper-made calendar, I try to design a functional calendar by combining the basic use and saving function.
Problem analysis of current Chinese calendars
There are some types of calendars using widely in China----- tearing calendar, calendar hanging on the wall and placing on tables. However, these traditional calendars have some weakness on user experience.
Traditional Chinese calendars don’t have effective user experience. To solve the problems above, we are soppused to utilize the paper with less surplus, and find a way to make the calendar more functional.
To make the calendar more functional, the first step is to find something that people do or could do everyday.
Chinese like depositing money!
Product design specification
By using the paper and tube, I designed a calendar product. People could save a $1 CHN coin in the tube every day. The date printed on the paper is the scale, which also represented the amount of coins. The distance between two dates is the thickness of the coin.
