UI / Icon Design

Daily UI is a series of daily Design Challenges that I take to hone my design skills.

Lots of inspirations can be found on Dribbble regarding User Interfaces with charming looks, but as a UX designer, I try to put more thought into usability when practicing. Functions, user behaviors and thoughts are something behind the screen. That’s us, as UX designer, need to take into consideration rather than putting the cart before the horse.
