Much Code, Wow Design
It’s important to keep all of your skills sharp- especially the ones you’re most passionate about. I love building new things- which means there’s a lot to do in the development world. Sometimes I go in too much on the development which has the effect of my design work falling by the wayside- maybe becoming dull.
So, to help keep these skills sharp I’ll be partaking in a daily design challenge. Not UI, not UX, not logos.. everything.
The reason I enjoy, and am thankful for, this industry I’m so privileged to be a part of is the breadth of work we’re able to be a part of. Bouncing from strategy to development to making something as beautiful as it is usable is something not many work-types offer.
So, here come the designs. Today is the third, so I’ll be pumping out a few today. Everything that I’ll be sharing is practice and not oriented towards achieving any business goals. I haven’t designed for fun in a long time- this is going to be great.
Something I’m going to experiment with are setting some type of constraints. The easiest will be color, I’ll use coolors to generate random colors which I’ll treat as “brand guides” I would normally not have control over.
Change of method..
I decided here to go out and find a DailyUI challenge to help with ideas and concepts each day. I found myself either lacking on an idea or bouncing too much between them, wasting time I’d rather not waste. Enter dailyui.co.
