Why I decided to get UI skills
As a UX designer, I thought I had everything I needed to succeed. Unfortunately, I didn’t have UI skills, and I came to learn the importance of creating beautiful user interfaces the hard way. First, my UX consulting clients preferred to hire someone with a variety of skills. Secondly, my portfolio was terrible, and it portrayed a bad impression about my work and skills. Having majored in engineering, it became my main excuse for failing to build something that looks good.
But soon I realized that I couldn’t let my excuses be the cause of my failures. Without any knowledge about aesthetics, I decided to learn through hard analysis everything there is to know about the aesthetics of apps. After hours of digging, practicing, and detailing what works, I picked up a few lessons for building a great UI.
