In this side project, I limit myself to redesigning user interfaces that already exist. My rationale is simple. Design involves problem-solving; it is not only about creating, but improving.
The design process and learning points are documented in blog posts which I post on Medium. Do check it out!
User Interface Design

Gmail's sign up page
Staying true to Google’s minimalistic, user-centric approach to design, I crafted an alternative design to Gmail's sign up page. Key learning point: the importance of space and clarity in forms.

Paypal’s checkout page: Redesigned
A change from Paypal's classy white checkout page, I added more contrast and split the content on the original page into two - one section for making a payment, another for signing up. I also took the chance to try Affinity Designer, another prototyping tool, for the first time.
