About this event

AND She Can UX/UI Design Challenges Series

The #andshecan UX/UI Design Challenge Series is a great place for aspiring women to practise design, get feedback, and win prizes. Unlike other design challenges, our aim is to help close the digital skills gap and get women into design and tech.

Beginning with a half day kick off session on the 27th May (all ticket types include access to this session), a series of weekly and bi-weekly challenges will follow, from 30th May up until 26th August.

How Does It Work?

Sign Up:

  • You'll need to sign up for each of the UI and UX challenges that you'd like to take part in. We have a range of ticket options depending on how many challenges you want to do - it's entirely up to you how many challenges you enter for, but the more you do, the more chances of winning you'll have! All ticket options will be invited to the kick off session on 27th May, and information will be shared on that a few days prior.

  • The initial kick-off session is a half day on the 27th May, that will give you the overview of the series. We’ll be accepting the first 25 registrations for the UI Design Challenge series, and the first 30 registrations for the UX Design Challenges.

Design:

  • Every Monday you will receive an email with a UI or UX design brief, for the challenges you have signed up for. Make sure to RSVP and confirm your participation in that particular challenge.
  • Using the weekly design prompts, create a unique solution for the problem. You can work individually for the UI challenges, but for the UX challenges you’ll need to work in teams of 3.

Submit:

  • Once your designs are ready, upload them on the submission link, which will be provided before the weekly UI or biweekly UX challenge deadline is reached.
  • Get Feedback: Every time you submit a design, a team of ANDis will review your work and provide constructive feedback, helping you to improve and learn.
  • Win Prizes: After reviewing each design submission, the 1st and 2nd place winners will be announced the week following the submissions, and they will receive their prizes. Some participants will also have their work featured on our social media pages, and get feedback from our community to help improve future submissions.

Who Is It For?

Are you new to the world of design? Do you have little or no experience as a Designer? Then you’ve come to the right place. Our aim is to help get more women into tech, and this is a great place to start your journey!

  • Career Switchers

Have you recently switched careers? Or are you looking to switch careers and become a Designer? Then look no further. This design challenge series aims to give you a taste of both User Interface and User Experience Design.

  • School/University Leavers

If you are currently about to leave school, college or university then this design challenge series is a great place to hone your skills, learn design principles, and gain a solid understanding of the world through the eyes of a designer.

Why Should You Take Part?

  • Win Prizes: At the end of each challenge, we will give away prizes to the 1st and 2nd place winners in the UI challenges and the 1st place winners in the UX challenges. This could include 1-on-1 mentoring sessions, portfolio and interview prep sessions, or some goodie bags!
  • Get Featured: Each week we will send out an email to the entire #andshecan community announcing the winners and showcasing their work. Winners will also be featured on our social media pages.
  • Gain Experience: Whether you’re new to design, leaving school or university or maybe switching careers, taking part in these challenges gives you valuable experience to learn from.
  • Build Your Portfolio: Another key benefit of taking part in these challenges is the fact that you can use all the designs and work you do to go towards building your own portfolio, giving you a head start.

Ready To Get Started?

Sign up today to get started with your career in design and tech! We’d love to have you onboard and help us to get more women into the industry. It’s totally free to participate, and you can stop at any time.
