2. Sharpen

A user friendly website easily accessed via

Sharpen is a free design challenge generator used by tens of thousands of designers and educators worldwide to practice and teach graphic design, UX, branding, and more. We generate millions of short, quick-to-use mock design briefs for fast, efficient practice sessions.

Founded in 2017 by designers formerly at Google, Sharpen aims to make high-quality practice briefs accessible and easy to get started with. Our format of lightweight, practice client briefs mirrors the design challenges that top startups, universities, and Google’s onsite interview process use to evaluate how designers approach open-ended creative problem solving.

Instead of padding our design briefs with irrelevant fake client content, Sharpen generates shorter, open-ended design briefs that challenge designers to focus on the principles of design. That’s why so many STEM educators, hiring managers, and mentors choose Sharpen.

They’re committed to democratizing access to design education with the free, principled tools we wish we had when first learning design.

3. Good Brief

A diverse tool available on

It is a random brief generator that helps you with personal projects. You can also find tutorials as well as templates to work with on it.

4. UX Challenge

The landing page looks awesome, right? That was my first impression too. Check it out on

Check a little from their about here:

“As designers, we know that a portfolio of work is crucial for getting into the field of UX. But like a lot of designers who are just starting out, you might be stuck in the need-experience-to-get-experience loop.

Trust me, I’ve been there, and it sucks.

Should you include the blog you designed for your friend? Write up a case study of your own portfolio? Or should you do another “redesign” of Instagram? I’ve done all of the above when I was starting out as a designer, and they didn’t really help me get a job. It wasn’t until I was on the other side of the table looking for designers that I realized…”

5. Fake Clients

You can give it a try on Trust me, there is nothing fake about this platform. If anything, it is one of the realest I’ve come across during my career. So, I’ll suggest they try something like imaginaryclients because the word fake is so repulsive now. So good that you always have challenging projects to work and improve your skills and boost your portfolio. Check their about here:

I created in January of 2018 as a simple side project. During this time, I was working on growing my portfolio and gaining more experience in design. It was hard to get initial clients when I was starting so I would often come up with ideas for fake businesses to design logos that I could use in my portfolio and gain some experience with.

I decided to create a simple generator that would come up with random combinations and create a simple, fake, logo design client brief for you to practice on. I launched the website on product hunt, Reddit and various other platforms and it was received very well. Many people seemed to have the same problem I had. I continued to work on and added various other professions besides logo design. Users of FakeClients can now also share their work with the community on to receive feedback on their work from others. has now grown significantly and currently has thousands of monthly users that are eager to learn more about design and how to improve their work. Many users have made great improvements in their work just by using FakeClients and the feedback that was given to them.
