So 2018 of May, Adobe XD was running a pretty cool design challenge through their twitter channel. UI designers could submit an entry based on utilizing UI design elements created by other designers that Adobe XD was promoting during these weekly competitions to create submissions from.
The common prize that winners were receiving were both a one year subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud Service and a brand new Apple 13” MacBook Pro.
The competition peeked my interest because I could design something outside of the regular commercial real estate stuff I was doing daily and I had some downtime to get a little more acquainted with Adobe XD. Also I have not seen a prize of this value before with Adobe of that scale and value so I figured I would give it a try! So I spent about an hour or so putting some screens together pretty quickly and posting my submission online.
Below is how it all went.

There were quite a few entries but I sure was surprised to wake up the next morning with my twitter account blowing up with new followers and an announcement from Adobe XD that I won the competition!
A few weeks later I got this this awesome little stencil kit in the mail which included UI stencils, pencils, paper, stickers and a gift card to purchase the notebook with!
Thank you ADOBE!
