Daily UX Writing Challenge

Category: UI/UX Design, Advertising

Duration: 15 days

Tools: Figma

I took part in a Daily UX Writing Challenge with a goal to take on UX writing and learn a thing or two on the way!

After signing up, I got a daily prompt in my email for 15 days (14 days + 1 day for bonus challenge) with a situation and requirements (character limit) for each solution. The challenge itself is coming up with only UX copy, however, I went ahead and created user interface designs to see the solution visually and in detail.

Key takeaways from Daily UX Writing Challenge
 

Lessons below apply to specific challenges, and may not apply to some depending on the context of the challenges.

  • Time management: Without the time constraint on the challenges (day), I would have spent time excessively when the main component was finished few hours ago. It was a great reminder to keep me focused on including only the essentials.

  • Minimalism: Sacrificing details, including only what’s the most important.

  • Being direct: Excluding humour and focusing on delivering only the crucial information.

  • Not a robot: Adding personality to the messages, friendliness, and words of caring can attract users.

  • Consistency is key: Keeping different screens on the brand by colour, text style improves legibility, trust among users.

  • Do research: Coming up with solutions took some sort of research for myself, from research, I was able to know key components, features in each screen from different industries today.
