“Usually when you have to design something,” says Sun Young, “your task is to fill it in. In this case, there should be only essential elements so the user can fill it in and complete it.” Because of this, for Sun Young, the process was more like product design rather than graphic design because of the greater emphasis on practicality.
“The aim,” Sun Young concludes, “is that people will make the planners into their own drawings, using the dot-to-dot in their own unique way, resulting in each one having different drawings on the planner at the end of the academic year.”
Final words of wisdom
When asked for her top tips on managing time, Sun Young suggests doing it in a way that suits you best. “In my case, I focus on a specific block, and use the time relatively freely within that period,” she notes. “And in the meantime, I do unplanned spontaneous things.”
