Do daily UI challenges help you become a better designer?

    I think a lot of times the word "Designer" is taken multiple ways. A lot of people assume "Visual Designer" while others take it as it's technical value of more than just the look of it, but the way it works. As for the 100 day challenge, I believe the spirit behind it lays in the visual side of things. While everybody works to make things as useful and meaningful as possible, I think that having fun flexing your visual muscles its what this is all about. I'm working on my UI stuff with a sense of UX, but this time I'm not limiting myself to dev restraints or anything. Maybe a UX challenge would work, but in the end, I think this is just a challenge for people to try out visual things they might not have tried before. Sometimes you just need to throw down whats on your mind and see how it works.
