Preparing for a job interview is a daunting process, since candidates can never be totally sure of the types of questions and exercises that a company might throw at them, so this newsletter of weekly design challenges from designer and Amazon Best-Selling author Artiom Dashinsky helps UX designers prepare for their big day. The newsletter provides design exercises that are used in interviews for some of the top companies in the tech world, including Google, Facebook, and WeWork.
While there are plenty of resources for software engineers that give them tips and tools for practicing ahead of interviews, few of those same resources exist for designers. As such, many designers tend to focus on the aesthetics of their portfolio more than they do working on practical exercises and challenges.
