    Hey Adam!

    I would advise you to increase general font-weight to at least 300. I've had some hard time reading through your site on both of my monitors :(

    Haven't used this tool personally, but you might as well have a look at it.

    Yes, they do!

    I'm on my 4th day of the challenge.

    Here are my personal pros & cons so far:

    PROs:

    Time constraint

    You only get 1 day to complete a task, which totals in several hours, if you work full-time. I believe I will be able to tackle real life cases more effectively in future + better time-management skill.

    Practice

    I design in Sketch and want to master this tool. Variety of tasks allows me to try different techniques.

    Creativity & abstract problems

    For me, the challenge is a balance between creativity & problem-solving. Since I'm not solving any real problems, I might just train my creativity skill. For example, today I received a task to design a Calculator and I thought why not make it a speech-based. I set my own constraints which allows me to be a client for myself (very challenging!)

    Review of own work

    I review my work the next day. Fresh mind gives me the ability to see what could have been improved/done better. I think that's a big plus to experience.

    Feedback

    Sometimes you might be lucky to receive constructive feedback (if it's not Dribbble)((just kidding)). Good for beginners who have problems with visual design basics.

    CONs:

    Pretty much agree with everything what Volkan pointed out.

    I would put it this way.

    Pixel pushing

    I will be happy if some of my designs get implemented in future, for now they are just pictures.

  • Posted to Should I use sketch for wireframing?, Sep 11, 2015

    I personally do wireframing in Sketch, then use the very same wireframes for elaborate design.

    Saves time when you have to do both!

    P.S. Sketch is awesome
