100 Day Design Challenge

I officially began on February 26, 2017 and completed the design challenge on June 5, 2017. I began with little to no design knowledge, and my goal was to become familiar and quicker with design tools and see how much I've improved from Day 1 all the way to Day 100.

The most valuable lesson I’ve learned in the past 100 days was that designing wasn’t just simply placing nice colours and shapes onto a page. It’s really about solving the greater user experience problem, to provide a seamless, problem-free experience for all users, whether it be within an app or a website.

Day 85 - Ready to Fly


As I was creating this, I realized the type and design was very similar to Day 83's Design. I had quite a bit of fun creating this one. Nothing was too hard about this design, and I chose it because it colours and layout really popped out at me.

I was able to create this design in under 30 minutes, definitely a lot faster than some of the other ones I've created. That's because I was able to get the style of image I want right away. The angle of the airplane and the image format allowed me to cut down a lot of time and skipped some steps as well.

To be clear, I made this design to improve on my visuals, so I'm not too sure why certain things are placed the way they are. This covers things like the left column of circles and numbers, as well as the right aligned text in the centre. I wouldn't say this is the best way to go about a design, but I don't have huge problems with it. I wanted to see if I could recreate the design with the right shapes, text, and colours. I feel like I did a fairly good job.

I'm so glad I was able to find this design on the web. It's definitely one of the "cooler" designs that I have found on Pinterest. I'm still deciding if I want to continue doing landing pages or something different. I feel there are a lot of different landing pages that I could try - something more aligned with the grid and columns.
