Design Report — March 2018

After a couple of skipped months I’m finally back to my monthly design reports.

I started these monthly design reports back in last year to challenge my UI/UX design skills and grow as a designer. The main purpose of these side projects is to try out new techniques, plugins, prototyping tools and solve design challenges I’m interested in.

During the last couple of months I received unbelievable amount of work (seemed like everyone wanted a new design at the beginning of the year), so I had to focus more on client projects and prioritize them over my side projects.

By now everyone is happy and I’m finally back on track working on side design projects as well.

This article is a collection of my design work created in March 2018 combined with my favorite design inspirations.

Skillshare Design Class Live 🎉

https://skl.sh/2I6RCcx

During the last couple of weeks I’ve been working with the amazing Skillshare team to create a new class for beginner and intermediate designers.

In this class everything is step-by-step, without any shortcuts or hidden secrets. I wanted to create a class, where you feel like you sit next to me during the complete project and we design together.

This class is tailored for beginners and intermediate designers who would like to learn how to use Sketch and also how to improve as a designer by connecting design with business goals.

If you’re interested in how I design on a daily basis and how I work as a designer, I definitely recommend you checking out the class.

You can checkout the class for free using this special link: https://skl.sh/2I6RCcx

Landing Page Template

This landing page was created as an example during my first Skillshare design class focusing on how to create landing pages for better conversions using the most common design elements such as the 3-feature-section and testimonials.

The goal was to create a design, which is inline with the latest design trends, while focusing on hitting the business goal (getting more people on the platform) and only use elements, which are easy-to-create during the developing part.

You can download the template for free from here.
