the elzr weblog has recently posted an infodesign challenge: "My mother’s 48. She can’t read small type very well. She has trouble using little calendar cards because the day numerals are so small. There is so much repetition in the current scheme for representing a year that there has to be a better way, a better infograph that will fit a year within 86 by 54 millimeters of hard paper."
not sure whether this is sufficient for a design brief (or whether a collection of far-sighted mothers will judge the entries), but I guess someone from the infosthetics crowd could try to help her? I would appreciate any submission to be posted here in the comment section as well, as the entries could then be added to this post.
for inspiration, see also creative calendar design.
