Encourage and efficiently manage the time one spends with his/her family.
The inspiration for this application is derived from my personal life where it's a challenge to spend quality time with my family. I realized that this challenge is faced by many who struggle to enjoy with their respective families due to lack of time management. The FamilyTime mobile application focuses on offering a more clear and robust way to keep oneself updated with each family member's schedule and organize events that are convenient for all. This will help improve the quality of time one spends with his/her family without any substantial hardship.
I conducted a preliminary research for understanding what challenges people currently face while managing their family time. It gave me clarity on "Should I even invest time ideating and designing this application?". It also helped me formulate a list of features that should fit user's needs.
Analysis of data captured using the above research gave me insights into user expectations and formulate a set of features that are important from users perspective.

This feature allows you to check the overlapping available slots for all family members. This can be the starting point for planning your event.
Using this feature you can add/remove any family member. You can also customize names for each of the family member such it is more personalized.

Sleek & Minimal
The app has a very sleek design based on a specific theme that is eye pleasing. It includes minimal interactions where each screen serves a specific purpose.
CUPS OF COFFEE
To incorporate the above features, I developed quick mockups to conceptualize the flow and design of the application. Creating quick wireframes helps me in getting ideas out on the paper and iterate better to come up with enhanced solutions.
Following the Atomic design approach, I designed all the application screens along with it's logo.
