I produced this design as an educational exercise, in order to teach my students about design systems and components.

At the same time, it solves a genuine pain point for me. Most of the current views in Apple’s Calendar app are useless to me. I only use the Month view.

A well-designed, readable week view would be a nice addition. Weekly note-taking would supercharge my productivity.

The layout is based on the physical calendars I used to get every year from the stationary store.
