Don’t use contrast
When you designing and work with color you must have a good contrast so the colors will work great together, treat the little square like a text or any design element you can imagine and see how the bad contrast example hurts the eye compared to a good example.
Make wrong layouts
Always remember when you working with the text you need to be as accurate as you can, so the user will be on focus on what he reads and feel clean flow when reading.
When aligning text to left, keep the title aligned to left also, it’s an important example many designers get wrong.
Design small buttons
Not doing research
Research is the most important thing a designer needs to make before jumping to actually designing, it gives a lot of information about the market you design for, why you design, etc.
Using the wrong fonts
Just, for example, look at this tow fonts compared to each other, you can see that each of them mean something completely different, either tho is the same text.
Giving too many options
When you designing, try to filter the options you designed (let’s say logo design) to 3 or 2 options, present also your favorite one, so the client wouldn’t be confused about which options to choose.
