Weekly UI Design Challenge

What is my UI Challenge?

Having showcased some of my abilities to display a depth in both UX and into UI skills (PlanUP), I have decided to start a weekly UI design exercise to further develop my proficiency with graphic design. My goal to this portfolio piece, is to not only showcase, but also personally execute designs frequently, and purposefully. 

Throughout directly using, and experience a wide range of app service categories, I will design within existing trends, and keep a single UI style overall. 

Why the Design Challenge?

My aspiration to this weekly challenge as a creative, is to have a shot in designing everything. One of my personal desires had always been to becoming an expert in the design of anything and everything. In the case UI design in the mobile space, I will seek out new designs weekly; and just design!

How I approached the Designs?

How does the design compare to user expectations?

How are users provided with relevant information at each stage of the designed interaction?

How is the balance of information hierarchy between useful, and necessary contents? 

How is the familiarity between the new, and present designs? 

UI Trend Discoveries

Out with top Tabs, bottom Navigation bars are nicer

Design more screens sorted from interactions

Use Dividers or Cards for all contents

Less colour, more images 

Gradient colours aren't practical, but looks nice

Light grey background, and shadowed cards are mainstream
