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Is your online portfolio outdated or, worse yet, something you just 'haven't gotten around to creating'?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.

Well organized and easy to follow. She outlined how to get started and offered a lot of examples. Loved the candid email string in the Resources section. If anything, you will get a kick in the butt to finally get it done because it's an assignment!
