Stay One Step Ahead.
This is the documentation for a fictional time-based phone app called "payday." The app is designed to help users keep track of their pay date; specifically users with several part-time jobs. This brief demonstration clip below shows how the user would navigate the app including a little bit of onboarding.
Keep track of multiple jobs pay dates and amounts.

Toggle between the "calendar view" and the "cycle view"
In the second draft, I experimented with different colors and themes. This is where I came up with the idea to have the calendar represented by gold coins and a general count down in the middle of the cycle view. I also thought of having some sort of piggy bank/ bowl with money in it representing the number of days left. This approach was a little too cluttered and so I opted to just have the cycle around a chip in the middle because it looked cleaner and easier to interpret. I experimented with a bar graph representation, having the yellow color and the number of days written above. In the end, I stuck to having two views: the calendar view and the cycle view.
The different color schemes were fun to experiment with but I opted a for more monochromatic palette as seen above.
