Every day I visit the academy, but some people I never see. One of these people is Annemiek from the executive secretary. I got to know her during a small project I did before.
I admire her because of her talent for organizing. I wanted to help her by making her work less complicated. I asked her: What is the most difficult about your job? She told me it was the appointment planning. How could I improve this?
Annemiek tries to alternate “easy” appointments with intense ones. Wouldn’t it be easier if this alternation would be already included in the calendar system? I started experimenting with methods to visualize intensity and priority in an agenda. This finally resulted in a digital design.
This way there is a quick summary of the week, day or month. When It is too busy she can quickly see wich appointments to drop first.
