About This Class

Is your online portfolio outdated or, worse yet, something you just 'haven't gotten around to creating'? Whether you're a student looking for a first UX job or a seasoned UX professional, you've probably experienced the struggle of maintaining an engaging and up-to-date online portfolio.

In the class we'll review the tools that can facilitate maintaining an online portfolio, as well as the fine art of choosing and/or creating the deliverables to include. 


We'll address some of the key questions around portfolio creation, including:

  • Should I design a custom portfolio or use a hosted solution? 
  • Do I need my employer's or client's permission to share deliverables?
  • What if I work on internal apps or under Non-disclosures?
  • What if my work is research-oriented?
  • What if I'm still in school or just starting out? 

To answer these questions, I draw on my own experience, and share the advice of UX managers and professionals.  The main goal is to get your hands dirty putting together a portfolio you won't be afraid to share with potential clients or employers. 

We will end with posting your portfolio to the project gallery for review.
