UX Design Contest #9

Design a doc with superpowers

πŸ™ˆ This contest ended April 14, 2019

Note From Adam

πŸ‘‹ Hey Designers,

Documents are some of the most commonly designed products, empowering customers, companies, teams, and individuals to do their jobs and realize their goals. Developing skills with documenting tools is one way you can start differentiating ourselves as experienced, professional designers.

Keeping up with creative trends is an important part of growing as designers. The No-Code movement is one trend that’s disrupting the way we think about documents. It’s time to apply your design thinking process and skills to the No-Code revolution with UX Design Contest 9.

This contest is your opportunity to design and build an amazing doc with popular No-Code tools, show it off to the world, and build out your design portfolio. It’s beginner-friendly and... there will be prizes!

🀞Good luck and happy designing!
