Daily UI Challenge 2018
Daily UI Challenge is a website that aims to cultivate better designers. Anyone who accepts the challenge recives an email every weekday for 100 days prompting users to create specific designs.
Users get a prompt telling them to create, for example, a start up screen. Users then choose the platform, style, and content for themselves and post on social media.
I am taking this challenge a step further and creating and showing my wires for these challenges.
Day 001: Sign Up
I like to start any project by thinking about the mobile screens first and then build up from there. I think any start up screen needs at a minimum: username/email, password, a password repeat, and a submit button.
One of the things that I thought about was that annoying instance when the app is not recognizing a returning user and they are routed to the sign up screen. That prompted me to add the link to the login screen.
Another thought that I went back and forth on was if I should show the password repeat or if that should display after the password is set. I decided that there was ample room to add it here so I used the space.
Day 002: Credit Card Checkout
Again, I went to the mobile version first. I wanted something that was very clean and minimal. What does the user absolutely need on this page? The only other thing that I would think about adding would be the option to scan the card so the user doesn't have to input all of the information.
Day 003: Landing Page (Above the fold)
I went with a simple landing page with two call-to-action buttons. I really want to convert the user. In retrospect, I should have added an about link so the user can get to know the company and not just the product.
Day 004: Calculator
I went with the basic calculator and a clean design. As a user, I don't need anything more than buttons with a hint of boundaries in a calculator design. I find everything else wasted effort.
Day 005: App Icon
The app icon is for a Tetris style game. I took out the Zen because I thought it might be unnecessary; possibly too small to read at the size of an icon.
