VI. SCHEDULING MAPPING FOR THE TRAVELING MODEL
After getting jobs, transportation is the art model’s greatest concern. Generally, classes and workshops last 3 hours, and begin anywhere from 9AM to 7PM. A single day can take a model to four bookings across LA if they’re up for it.
This house call-style travel was my main consideration while designing for schedule management. From the model’s dashboard, their schedule map will show the when and where of their bookings. White and colored markers differentiate between one-time and weekly recurring bookings.
Models may also display their map on their public profile. I hope that this will (1) lead to unexpected booking opportunities based on gaps and proximity in a model’s schedule and (2) reduce unnecessary inquiries about the model’s availability at specific times.
