Calendeck is a project that combines the 2019 calendar year with a functional deck of playing cards. My objective was to design a calendar structure which may be unorthodox, but still be useable. Considering that the calendar could be designed in endless possibilities, I wanted to create something that the user could easily hold, play, and use. This thought process led me to design the calendar into a form of playing cards which allows the consumer the opportunity to use and play while still being small enough to easily transport.

What's Unique?
Not only are the playing cards a useable calendar, but I created a connection between the design and its functionality. Time often feels like it is being lost. I designed the calendar in the form of a deck of playing cards because it allows the consumer to have a personal experience of winning back time. I designed my deck based off of circular patterns to represent how time is also continuous. Each design choice was intentional to make the Calendeck unique. The name itself is a combination of its functions: a calendar and a deck of playing cards.
