The Design Project - Personal Challenge is live!

  • Save

TheDesignProject, more than a personal project was a personal challenge I made to myself almost 1 year ago, at that time I had planned to do a daily UI challenge, but I realized that in UI challenges the result was just something "nice" and not something "functional" or something that solved a real problem.
.
I decided to turn these challenges around, not only to improve the aesthetics but to challenge myself to solve real problems. It was then that I decided to add to these daily challenges the ability to solve any problem that I have during the day, so I would be sure that my idea would be something useful and not something nice. Being the user I would have to be and learn to be more empathetic with myself, to detect my own pain points, and to discover my wow moments.
.
Many people asked me where I got the challenges, or where they could practice them, it was there that I realized that this personal challenge could help other designers to think more about the problem, it took me many months but is finally on the air, for now I'm explaining how this adventure was and how it was created. I want to see what happens later, see how others react, how they interact, later give advice and tips on the subject. This is the good thing about any project, you never know how it's going to be and this is the same as any product. One cannot define which will be the end, because there is no end, things change on the way, the perspective changes, the model changes, the vision can be modified, even the scope can change.

Remember that the design is not a sprint is a marathon, a constant marathon of iterations and improvements. This is my first step, I do not know what will happen next with this project, I just know that I learned a lot with him and I would like to share it with you.
.
I will be publishing updates of the project so keep informed, today is a challenge tomorrow is another thing :).
