Adventure in Over-Engineering

To take a break from working on my main project, I decided to do a mini-project.

The problem: I keep losing my daily do lists in all the clutter of my life. So I thought, I needed a do list holder. And there’s no project, big or small, that can’t be over-engineered. Of course, it will involve lots of duct tape.

This is what I ended up with:

Now you may think, “It doesn’t look pretty.” But cheap ugliness is what I was aiming for as a design aesthetic. And the ‘decorative tape’ was on clearance at the arts and crafts store. And besides, it’s a prototype. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

At any rate, I no longer have the excuse of misplacing my do list to detain me from doing it.
