Brand creation

On a nimble incubation team in Microsoft Research, I worked with our team to create a holistic brand system and UX design that’s instantly recognizable and provides a simple and cohesive experience for our users. Calendar.help uses the speed of artificial intelligence with a touch of humanistic qualities to provided simple and quick meeting scheduling. The user simply writes an email to the attendees and CC’s the assistant. The assistant handles all the back and forth of finding the right time for everyone to meet, then emails everyone when a time has been decided.

Logo

The logo is friendly, easy to read, and delightfully playful. The logo is simple and geometric, this reflects the characteristics of the typeface. All of this accomplishes a modern and timeless mark with a nod towards timing and scheduling.
