The Visily Design Contest organised by Visily Inc. in collaboration with Hoa Sen University has seen hundreds of contestants submitting a range of outstanding user interface designs.
The final round of the Visily Design Contest took place at Hoa Sen University in late August, featuring competition from six teams from several schools, including Hoa Sen University, University of Economics and Law – Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City, and FPT University.
|The Visily Design Contest is aimed at those passionate about information technology, communication, and creativity. |
Targeted at students aged 16-25, the contest provided a place to unleash their creativity and showcase their ideas in website/app UI design. The competition created an environment for exchanging knowledge about one of the most exciting fields in the digital economy.
Contestants competed in teams over four rounds:
- Preliminary Round: teams posted submissions on Facebook
- Warm-up Round: teams used Visily to create a mockup of the homepage for an e-commerce site
- Acceleration Round: teams created flowcharts for their e-commerce sites based on the previous round
- Final Round: teams used Visily to complete the designs for their websites/apps to present to judges
The finalists included six teams: Team TechPrincess, Team ExCre, Team TripleN, OT3, Team G3 NOT 3, and Team Kiminonawa.
Their designs spanned various industries, including an ice cream ordering app, a cafe website, a gamified English learning app, and an app for managing passwords, documents, and payment information.
The designs were eye-catching, aesthetically pleasing, and demonstrated a seamless experience for online users.
Selecting a winner proved to be a challenge for the judges, who ranked contestants based on criteria such as creativity and originality, feasibility, visual appeal, and optimised user experience.
Visily's founder, Nguyen Quang Buu, said: “We are the only product on the market leveraging AI technology to assist users in designing high-quality interfaces. I hope that contestants have gained valuable experience and skills through this competition, preparing them to build great technology products in the future.”
