The Official 100 Day Sketching Challenge, Part 3


#1

One hundred days of sketches makes for one mighty long thread, so we decided that we should split the topic every 25 days. Here’s the scoop.

Rather than reinventing the wheel we’re going to follow Krisztina Szerovay’s awesome 100 days of Visual Library Building structure. The idea is that we develop (or hone) our sketching skills, build a fantastic UX visual library that we can utilise in our future work, and have some fun.

How it works

Starting today Hawk or I will post 3 objects or concepts related to UX each day into this topic. You can follow along at a pace that suits you. That may mean sketching each day or it may mean catching up on the weekend. There are no rules.

I encourage you to share your work in this topic if you’re comfortable doing so. We can all encourage each other.

Sketching Resources

Here are a few resources to get you started. If you’re new to sketching for UX I’d strongly recommend watching this excellent prep video from Dave Gray: Visual Thinking Basics

Krisztina has also created some amazing sketching resources. She publishes a free UX Knowledge Base Sketch each week at https://uxknowledgebase.com/ and has an excellent course on Udemy called Sketching for UX Designers. She has kindly created a $9.99 coupon code especially for the UX Mastery community. You can take advantage of that here.

And now, without further ado, let’s get started again!

Thank you! This has been a fun exercise, and it’s really helped me build up my sketching skills. I’m glad we’re doing this :slight_smile:

Also, this all looks way more impressive when I put things off for about 2 weeks, and then do everything at once.
