Finances at a Glance


  • Type: Design Project
  • Goal: Design a physical representation of personal finances that makes it able to interact with your finances and supports the financial overview.


When young people start living on their own, they need to learn how to manage their finances. Tight budgets and unexpected fixed costs can give them a hard time keeping track of their financial status. Finances at a Glance puts this status into your daily life and offers more awareness at a glance. By using data of banking apps the finances are sorted and shown on the device. It shows the days of the month and the budget you have left on a monthly basis, starting from your main income. It also alerts you on upcoming fixed costs to give a more realistic overview of your budget. As it is an abstract visualization it can be understood by the owner, but will provide privacy when seen by others.
