Interesting idea – a weekly design challenge


This crossed my desk… No idea if it’s any good but it looks like an interesting premise.

Information that will change our lives!

hmmmm… looks interesting… I “signed up”, so far it’s sent me to the website where it advertises the book. About 5 minutes later I received this exercise… It’s an interesting one!

Weekly Product Design Exercise #1
At the beginning of each new semester or school year, teachers are faced with the challenge of remembering names for a large number of new students.

Design an experience to help an educator match faces to names, with the goal of shortening the time needed to reach complete un-aided accuracy.


My heart sank when I saw that first post but I’m so glad it’s delivered.

That does look like a good challenge. I remain interested!


I did the same and the first exercise is very interesting!
A lot of topics will be involved in designing a tool like this :slight_smile:


Interesting idea. I’m curious to see which other tasks come along.
And looking at the examples, it’s probably not a 5 min task :wink:


It doesn’t look liket a “5 min” exercise to me either, LOL


Have you had another one yet?


I think I got a second one… but haven’t received one this week yet.


Has anyone submitted first one ?


can anyone post the submitted exercise ? Just curious to check out the solutions.!



What’s the motivation behind solving those problems?


Multiple motivations I suspect. Some people do it for the challenge, some for the brain stimulation, some for the practice, some for portfolio examples… etc


I see. I never think of that way. It’s nice. I will do too. Are you participating in it?


I’m not. I wish I had time but I have 4 jobs and 9 year old twins. :wink:


I like this week’s exercise! wish I had time to play around with it.


Thanks for sharing!
Looks like it at least has people interested. I’ll sign up as well.


New one is up!!


Is anyone doing the challenges? Do you typically just use it to add to your portfolio?


I get really tired after job so no, I am not doing.

What about you?
