Twelve Months in Review: 2013/14, Mathew Zurlinden - A retrospective analysis

Book cover design.
WIP total year chart.
For my year end report I want to create some interesting graphics to support the data and research I have been collecting. This design was a sample of one possible design to show all activities I did for each day of the year.

Personal Time

Since October 2013 I have been working on a personal project about how I spend my time. I have been logging hours spent on each activity I do throughout each day. When I first started the project it was intended to help me find more time to work on projects. I always tell myself there are not enough hours in a day and I do not have enough time to complete projects. I was hoping I would look at the results and it would be obvious that I watch too much television, or spend too much time with friends, or I spend too much time at the bar...

At the beginning, I did not set a deadline to complete the research; I guess I had in the back of my head that it would last a couple weeks or maybe a month. I continued to log my time after the first month because I did not want to miss any important event that might happen and change the results. After collecting the data for a few months I decided I would collect the data for one full year and make a year end report.
