About this project
Hello to everyone! We want to represent you our project - application for iOS (iPad version).
Why did we decide to make a calendar? Usually, calendar applications for iOS aren't attractive - boring calendar grid, monotone backgrounds, typical fonts...Who enjoys such applications?!
Our calendar is, first of all, an art project! On the background of every month you'll see amazing Ukrainian women in national ethnic costumes with uathentic ornaments inherent to certain regions of our country. In the every month art you'll see our women at the ethnic ancient rituals that exist only in our culture and have mistic and sacral meaning.
Why did we choose women as main theme? For a long time in our country a woman protected the hearthside and was at the height of family hierarchy. Ukrainian women have much more ancient genes than men and are considered aboriginal residents of our land. That's why in our project we tried to show you the beauty of Ukrainian women and reproduce our ethnic rituals.
While creating every illustration we used a prototype of real existing Ukrainian women. For example:
Also you can see the process of creating the art:
Why do we need money? As the main aim of this project is to make the application for iPad, we ask you to support us so that we could pay for the work of illustrator, designer and programmer that work on creating this project. Also we need funds for our little promotion company.
For now 6 illustrations are completed, we have partly made a design of the application and now we are testing the future product.
The main reward and the main aim is iOS application for iPad.
In our team we have a professional that has more than 13 years of experience in software development and specialization in development for Macintosh and iOS platforms including porting software from other platforms with excellent knowledge of whole cycle of software engineering process: from requirements development and project planning to quality assurance and further supporting of software products.

Some digital rewards:
