Our phones are overflowing with apps to remind us of things. Heck, Ai assistants like Google Now, Siri and Cortana have the utmost important job of notifying us of events or dates, even birthdays. A proactive solution in a world where nearly everything is looking to catch our attention.
Then, I found this little gem of a project by a graphic designer and illustrator Cherie Cordier on my morning Behance peruse. She has developed an old school calendar (the kind you either hang on your wall or on a desktop) on which you write the dates and events you wish, and then take them with you.
It’s a rather charming and authentic solution to looking at your phone screen for the millionth time, one that harkens back to the days when we kept our schedule in a diary. Your fingers can, once again, feel the page. You can actually smell the paper. And you can mark a date with an actual pen. When was the last time you actually used a pen? (I’m kidding, humanity hasn’t descended that far into the abyss).
