Create a sign up page, modal, form, or app screen related to signing up for something. It could be for a volunteer event, contest registration, a giveaway, or anything you can image.
As a roller derby player myself, I often hear people say they could never skate. I wanted to make this sign up appear as welcoming and accessible as possible. From a design standpoint I wanted to practice combining text and photography as well as prototyping and gif making.
Design a credit card checkout form or page. Don't forget the important elements such as the numbers, dates, security numbers, etc.
For this design, on top of ensuring the essential functionality was present I wanted to push myself to work with gradients and metallic colors, from which I often personally shy away. I also wanted to play with the microinteractions of selecting a card or entering a new card.
Design a landing page. What's the main focus? Is it for a book, an album, a mobile app, a product? Consider important landing page elements (call-to-actions, clarity, etc.)
This challenge was a bit more personal for me: The Black Keys are one of my favorites bands, and I have loved the artwork for their Chulahoma album for years. I wanted to design an eye-catching landing page as if the The Black Keys were touring for Chulahoma today.
Design a calculator. Standard, scientific, or specialty calculator for something such as a mortgage? Is it for a phone, a tablet, a web app?
I had two main goals for this challenge: first, design a calculator in the way that I would find to be the most usable, and second, practice neumorphism for the buttons. Upon reflecting on my own calculator use, I determined that I strongly preferred being able to view a history of what had been entered.
