O  P      N

 

O P    N  is a minimalist time tracking tool that allows you to visualize and quantify your your free time. 


MISSION

 
 

OP  N is a passion project that I devote my free time to in order to challenge and enable others to increase mindfulness of their free time through a series of visual analytics.

The goal of   O P    N  is to simply invert calendar data so that all that is shown is the time free beyond the context of scheduled events.  By quantifying and visualizing free time in a beautiful way, users will be enabled make better use time by having a new awareness  of the hours in their day that are unscheduled.

I have a great love of visual analytics and their relationship to mapping the emergence of human behavioral patterns.  By measuring and visualizing intangible elements of our lives, such as free time, I feel we are better able to understand and use it to our advantage.

VISUAL DESIGN PREVIEW

 
 
 

My approach to the visual design of this platform was to maintain a sense of visual depth and openness while utilizing a series of visual analytic methods for the use to view and interact with their schedule. 


Through usability testing I am honing the interactions and visual indicators for free and scheduled time.  This is currently still in process as this is an early iteration of the visual design.  


I am currently in the process of designing the sharable analytics feature.  


Stay tuned for a clickable prototype of my next iteration in the coming weeks!
