Daily UI 014 - Countdown Timer

For today's prompt, I had to design a countdown timer. Inspired by my upcoming holiday abroad, I decided to try something less conventional for a timer, and created a dashboard/countdown timer hybrid concept.

I stuck to a grid this time, which was definitely beneficial in terms of helping me understand spacing and sizing a bit better but I still feel like the finished design is a bit off and is easily my least favourite of the challenge. I think it's just because I ended up going with a concept that was a bit half baked, and could have required me to spend a bit more longer conceptualising, especially in terms of what other information I was trying to showcase.

Alternatively, I think with a bit more tweaking of the elements, this could function as a good interactive header for an email delivered by whoever is organising your holiday or be a viable dashboard for tracking holidays or upcoming events.
