UX Challenges

My partner Taylor and I just launched some new UX Challenges.

👉 https://uxtools.co/challenges/

We made these so that designers can learn and practice crucial UX skills. There are too many clichéd UI exercises out there. These challenges are different:

👩🏻‍💻 Based in the real world. This isn't another fake redesign or "create an ATM for a centaur." Every exercise looks like a project you'd get in real life.

🛠 Practice important skills. UX is more than just UI. Each challenge helps you understand and train a specific UX skill like card sorting or usability testing.

💪 Stop reading: try UX. Nothing improves design skills faster than doing design work. Practice solving problems and see what real UX work is like.

💼 Get tangible takeaways. Have fun with mini projects, then walk away with a deliverable to put in your portfolio or use as a talking point in interviews.

Each challenge has a real-world scenario, a task aimed at helping you practice a specific skill, hand-picked references if you need help, and recommended tools.

Follow along on 🐦 Twitter: we'll be re-sharing and posting feedback for people who share their completed challenges there.

Let us know what you think!

Will you take on one of the challenges?
