Who are you?

My name is Paul Flavius Nechita, and I’ve been working as a designer for the past 4 years.

Tell us about your Daily UI Elements for 100 Days Straight project. How’d you decide to launch it, and how have you managed to keep up with what must be a grueling schedule?

This is a challenge that I’ve set for myself to help me step outside my comfort zone. It’s a great way to generate new ideas and to improve some skills.

My main motivation came from an YouTube vlogger named Casey Neistat who started a daily vlog for himself. I loved the fact that he created such amazing and high-quality content on a daily basis and that made me wanna do the same.

I went with 100 days because I felt that anything below that isn’t necessarily a challenge, and I needed something that would make me commit both physically and creatively. I can’t say that that was the best idea I ever had, because there were days when I felt exhausted and then there were days when I struggled to find a good idea to create a shot for the day, but the results that followed made me realize it was all worth it.

What else are you working on?

I have a few projects I’m currently working on, but to be honest I need a small vacation so that is the most important plan I have.

Choose a favorite shot of yours. Tell us why it’s a favorite.

I feel like this should be my favourite shot, not necessarily because it is the best but because it marks the beginning of my challenge. [Ed. Note: Paul finished his challenge today, so we decided to add his final shot, below.]

Tell us about your setup. What tools did you use to create the shot (e.g. hardware, software, pens, paper, blowtorch)?

Workspace

I recently purchased the MX Master from Logitech and I really like it. Except that, nothing special. I only use Adobe products, I don’t like the other alternatives and I don’t feel like I should shift to anything else right now.
