Sketch, and then sketch some more.

I’m going through Zero To Mastery’s UX course.

Here are my takeaways:

  • Go crazy with your sketching — don’t limit yourself when it comes to idea generation.
  • Add detail, and then refine.
  • 2nd point is interconnected to the 1st point.
  • Annotate your sketches! Use arrows, numbers, etc. so as to make your sketches easier to understand
  • Make your sketches clean — be professional esp. if you are doing a project for your clients/stakeholders. This makes for easy communication too.

What to prepare when doing your sketches

  • Prepare your tools! Pens, pencils, paper, etc. or when you go digital, choose whatever that is convenient for you to sketch your userflows.
  • Ask the right questions; who is this for? what is the end goal of these sketches?
  • Time-box yourself!

I think this is one of the more essential skills that will be useful in the long run. Limiting yourself to a certain time limit adds pressure to yourself, in a way that it forces you to produce work in a short span of time.

Some resources I found useful:

Pro app: A one stop UX/UI app that is comprehensive in all things UX/UI. Free/Paid options.

Free Figma UI Tutorial. A 10-hour beginner video. Something I’d want to dive into in the near future.

That’s all folks for day 3!
