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.

As I'm nearing the end of my A Design A Day challenge for 100 days, I'm trying to tackle some designs that allows me to create my own designs while following the grid system of the website.

I'm actually pretty proud of myself for doing this design. Even though this design wasn't that hard compared to some of the ones I've created, but it required a lot of little simple designs here and there. An example would be creating the lines within the text. I realized that doing even diagonal lines, they must all be on the same level before horizontally evening them apart.

Another fun design I had to create was duplicating the text and placing it under the main text. In order to create the "Fun!" and "Zakuzaku" text, I had to add a blue block over the bottom text to cover the top half. Then, the lower text with the blue block will be under the bigger text on top.

Everything was pretty straightforward and easy to re-create. Even the logo, I was able to create it within 30 seconds. Tomorrow, I was to challenge myself by choosing a design that was similar to this one, but requires more of the tools in Sketch to create some graphic design.
