Why Time Flies

Friday afternoons at Dapper ‘Magic Hour’ it is often discussed how quickly the days and weeks seem to go by. Sometimes, they go so fast that we even neglect our blog, unintentionally of course. Because this seems to be a common theme among adulthood, and as the summer months are coming to a close, I felt this interactive presentation put together by Maximilian Kiener describing Why Time Flies was quite an appropriate subject for this week. In his presentation he addresses in percentages why a week of a young-persons life can feel like an entire year to an average adult. He uses an interesting scrolling technique that allows the user to control the speed of the content being presented and focuses the motion horizontally rather than vertically. Notice how the text above is anchored to the timeline so you never lose your place. If you have a minute to spare out of your busy day I encourage you to scroll through his presentation and fondly reminisce what it was like to have an entire summer off from school, and how those 2.5 months equaled eternity…
