In April 2019, Adobe hosted a design contest in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. During this event, 20 hand-picked designers from all over the country were invited to participate in a 3-hour contest to create an app using the Adobe XD Prototyping program. Since I have been using Adobe XD ever since its beta period, I was excited to finally see the tool in action.

Making an app design
in only 3 hours.
Just minutes before the kickoff, we were given the theme on which the app should be focused. The whole process of designing, prototyping and testing is an interesting challenge, when on an extremely tight schedule. Nevertheless, we succeeded and received a respectable 3rd place.
The app features a welcome screen, which leads to the main dashboard. While making use of the interactive tile-design for navigation, users can immediately see their personal information or log out. The social features make the app a pleasure to use for both you and your friends or dear collegues, and offer much variety from the different available features.
”With a lot of of respect, I’ve watched these fine young gentlemen come up with ideas and shaping them into a working prototype. It’s quite intense with the jury members walking around and making notes. After three hours and hearing from people from the industry, they were the ones to give an elevator pitch in English in front of a large audience. And the students did very well. Great presentations where a result of three hours working very hard! At the end, Interaction Design students Casper and Sven ended on the third place. And that is amazing! It makes me feel so proud of these students, the Interaction Design staff and the GLR.Matthijs ClasenerAdobe Education Leader
