Another brief generator, with a twist! UX Challenge gives you 2 options - either use the brief as a whiteboard challenge, or create a UX design case study for your portfolio. All briefs solve real world challenges for customers, so give a fantastic insight into the world of a UX designer.

Design briefs written as though they're from a client. This site is perfect for working on your UX skills, but could also be used to work on those soft skills of communication. Why not go the full hog and use FakeClient to also practice your pricing skills and communicating your proposal with a client!
