Design challenges

Design challenges

I find design challenges are a great way to try something new in a limited time. I take inspiration from other challenges across Dribbble, Instagram and Twitter and run with an idea.

I give myself 30 minutes or an hour and see what I can come up. I aim to stick to 3 rules: Clear, Understandable and Different, and by different, I mean not the usual stuff I design in my day job.

Design challenges help me keep up with trends and concepts and let me try out things I wouldn’t normally do, like mixing up colour schemes, typefaces and design patterns.
