׳10,000׳ is a platform of design tutorials that tracks your progress toward the 10,000-hour goal (Rule 10,000). It learns your strengths and weaknesses as a designer and adapts your plan toward becoming a master.

overview

As part of my education, we have been asked to think about a concept of Dashboard in any topic we like. Of course, all I had in mind was design at the time – so I decided to roll with it.

concept

Malcolm coined the concept the “10,000-Hour Rule”, claiming that the key to achieving world-class expertise in any skill, is a matter of practicing for a total of around 10,000 hours. My immediate response was – I’m willing to put 10,000 hours into being a pro! And surely every determined designer.

target

My goal was to create a platform that provides High-quality design tutorials, motivation, and personal progress tracking in one place Customized for your needs.

my Challenges

my Challenges

Design for designer

Always tricky. The designers have the most critical eyes, they immediately lose trust in a product that is marketed for designers and not well designed.

Dashboard data

I had to choose what information to display for the user. What will motivate the user to proceed toward the 10,000 goal and what is irrelevant?

Visual information

How do I design some dry information like the number of tutorials and progress in an interesting way that Manages to score to the product value?

Product loyalty

10,000 is a lot of hours! How do I make the goal seem possible and simpler? how do I encourage users not to ditch in the middle of the process?

Research
and Analysis

User Research

I was lucky to be surrounded by a number of talented and Opinionated designers, so I gathered 6 different friends and sat them down for interviews. Here are the verdicts-

״Are you investing in learning to improve your design skills? If so, how?״

Unequivocally, everyone Invest time learning and developing. Everyone agrees that this is important because it is a profession that evolves And changes quickly. We need to keep up to stay relevant. One of the problems that came up repeatedly in the interviews was messiness. You save Facebook articles, follow a few YouTube channels, flip through Instagram turnstiles, but that is a massive waste of time to Skip between these channels. And time as known = money.

One sentence Agam said caught me especially-

"I want to learn and be better. There is no feeling more satisfying to the ego than being able to acquire a new skill. But there is so many shity tutorials on the Internet."

Research competitors

I decided to divide the research into 2:

  1. Great dashboards that conveniently display information.
  2. platforms of design tutorials.

Apple screen time

Oftentimes, species use vivid colors to ward off predators, warn they might be poisonous or to better blend in with their surroundings among coral reefs and kelp forests. Usually the colors that will stand out more on the blue of the sea are red and warm colors. So to emphasize important things I used a reddish hue.

The target users of ’10’000′ are designers At every professional level.  The conclusions I came to:

  • The information that designers consume scattered on many platforms. A platform that unites design tutorials that you can rely on its professionalism is highly valuable.
  • The ability to share co-workers in their learning process promotes and maintains a consistent standard in the design team.
  • When there is a distant goal, certainty is needed. How much did passed? How much do I have left? What's the next step?
  • The ability to consume information conveniently from anywhere is important. people want to pull out the phone at "blank" moments like on the way to the office or in line at the grocery store and convert to learning time.
  • People need reinforcements. Dividing into small, Easy tasks will make learning more satisfying.

my solution

Unlike the majority of online learning platforms, 10,000 provides the user with a goal and support system around that goal.
To succeed You have to divide everything into small steps.
I want to be a great designer >turns into> I need to spend 10,000 to specialize >turns into> you should focus on typography this week >turns into> here are 3 cute tutorials that teach typography, watch them during your free time.
Isn’t that much less intimidating this way?

user interface

Nordic colors

The sea is an interesting and visually fascinating world, people are drawn to it because of its beauty. Photos are a powerful tool to attract people to tours.

Geometric shapes

Easy filtering by tapping on a category that arouses user interest. This filter method launches every user right on the main screen without the user having to make any decisions before.

social pressure

The most recommended (constantly updated) categories are always on the top, which will increase the chances of users having a good experience. Also, naturally, people will buy more services that seem popular.

Color bond

One of the things every beginner diver learns is that as you dive deeper the colors “disappear” and everything becomes more monochromatic. I was inspired by this and decided on a background with a Gradient that is reminiscent of sea depth.

Thank you for taking the time to go over my project.
