One major piece to being a UX designer or creator of any kind is showcasing your work. Creating your portfolio from scratch can seem daunting but it is worth the time you take when you finally see your work shine. Structuring your portfolio clearly with the most crucial information will certainly set you up for success. Here are a few structural tips I personally use that I hope you find value in.
Typically for each project I decide to show, I want to make sure I cover:
- An overview of the project or client I worked with
- The problem I faced
- Who I worked with and how we collaborated
- Any tools I used (doesn't need to be just software)
- Any processes I used to solve the problem (research, user testing, prototyping, etc)
- The final result and what I learned about the experience
The important thing to remember is to show your best self, your best work and to show how you think.
Is there anything you make sure to include when beginning to create or iterate on your portfolio?
