10 mistakes you should avoid as a UX/UI designer
It’s been around 4 years since I have become a UX UI designer. I have gone through so many ups and downs in this short period of time. So, here’s a list of some common mistakes I’ve done before and you should avoid.
- Don’t over promise and under deliver. Always under promise and over deliver.
- Always understand the client needs and expectations. Don’t start the project without having a clear overview.
- Always ask if the client want only the design or they want the development also. Sometime client expects front-end development as well. So, make it clear before you start.
- Meeting are always great. But sometime the client you are working with are too busy. So don’t wait for small quires. Create a list for questions. Then send all together.
- There is a huge difference between inspired from vs copied from. Remember that in mind.
- Organize the files before delivery. Make it easy of the client to toggle.
- Always try to deliver on time. If it’s not possible at least inform them.
- In case of a website design, always follow the design guideline. Front-end development becomes easy if the designs are properly made.
- Don’t underestimate typography. Try to make a typography guideline before design the UI. And try not to use more than two font style.
- Read more design blogs. Sometime YouTube does not carry all types of information. But you find a lot of useful guides by reading popular UX/UI blogs.
