I'm exploring a new format for a calendar module. It only uses two lines for the dates causing it to be more of a landscape format than square.
The only problem is for users deciphering how the dates line up with the days of the week. So I used a legend and shade/tint coding system. I am just having a tough time determining how innate the usability is. If anyone could provide some feedback that would be much appreciated.
Here is another version with the weekends shaded and the weekdays tinted.
