Practice makes perfect.

Or at least, it does help improve your skills.

It does make you a better designer.

A better problem solver.

A better engineer.

A better maker.

Just better.

Here are some resources to up your game.

1. Designercize

Fancy designing a sortable list view for a habit-tracking app to help film snobs?

Or how about designin dashboard for a smart home watering system, to help social media managers?

or, a a settings view for a professional networking site designed for restaurant patrons?

Really, there are no limits to imagination and this very entertaining game interfaced design for a design learning website for designers – is real neat.

This is a challenge to take to improve your design skills – everyday with one new thing.

For instance on day 01: Design thinking – where you need to use design thinking to create something new : a new way to get to school, a time travel machine a personal jetpack that fits in a backpack. or on day 05: empathy maps, where you make an empathy map for a coffee shop.

100 Examples of UX problems

Jon Crabb is a UX designer from London and he’s put together a great list of of UX problems to think about – which I think does largely broaden the scope of UX thinking.

Problems range from :

Find your way around a new city.
Fill small amounts of “bored” time in your day with something interesting.
Split a check at a restaurant.
Split a check at a restaurant between vegetarians and meat-eaters.
Split a check at a restaurant between drinkers and nondrinkers.

to recommend a funnel management flow to Google or design a new app for Go Pro.
