60 User Interface Calendar Inspirations and Downloads
Welcome to the official calendar apocalypse! As humans we often forget things easily, such as anniversaries. One thing I’ve learned form my experience is to never forget that date, because once you do your in deep water. Apart from relationships we have many other important events happening in our lifes. If you’re a busy person that has too much food on your plate, you probably use a calendar to stay organized. Currently there are tons of apps and services that help you keep track of important events. Some services will even email you a reminder right before you need to accomplish something. All of these incredible tools help us stay on top of our game, and in a strange way act like our second brain.
Although people still use physical calendars to keep track of events, the digital age is strongly coming towards us. It’s much more easier to use an application on your smartphone, rather than carrying around your calendar agenda. Businesses heavily use calendar applications to stay on top of things. They have bills to pay, contracts to make, and deadlines to follow. Do you think it’s a coincidence when a hit movie like Transformers comes out, there are toys and other merchandise already on retail shelf space? All of these things get planned out months before the movie comes out. Companies have focused deadlines and follow the calendar like its their commandment.
