Hey All! It's our first official community challenge! If you didn't get a chance to see my announcement, you can check it out here. As a reminder, the goal of the community challenges is to provide an opportunity to help you build your design skills and provide / receive constructive feedback.
So, How Can You Participate?
If you'd like to participate in this month's community challenge, you have three options:
1. Submit Something to Be Redesigned: The foundation of the monthly challenges is what you submit to be redesigned. You are welcome to submit anything you'd like—a slide from an eLearning course you're developing, a job aid you're working on, a page from your portfolio, your resume, or anything else. Pick something that you know could be better than it is and that you'd like to see how someone else might redesign it.
👉 Submit your item by commenting below with a link, screenshot, or attachment. Sharing why you'd like to have it redesigned and how do you think it could be improved?
2. Redesign Something Submitted by Someone Else: The second opportunity for participation is to put your skills into practice by redesigning one or more of the items submitted by others. Pick something you think you can improve upon and redesign it using any tool(s) you'd like. Even if all you use is PowerPoint to create a simple mock-up, that's totally fine!
👉 Submit your redesigned item by replying to the original post where the item was originally shared as a link, screenshot, or attachment. As part of your submission, share any details about why you redesigned it the way you did, sources of inspiration, etc. Bonus points for recording and sharing a video of your redesign process.
3. Provide Constructive Feedback: The third and final opportunity for participation is to review and provide constructive feedback on what others redesigned.
👉 Share your feedback by commenting on the submissions of others. Share what you like and what you'd do differently. Remember to be respectful and constructive with your feedback.
What Are The Next Steps?
Alight, so that's an overview of how the challenges will work each month. The next step is to find something you'd like to have redesigned and share it by commenting below! And of course, if you see something you'd like to redesign...then go ahead and redesign it!
