Organizing Your UX Portfolio Website
Key components of your portfolio site:
1. Home page 🏡
Give a brief overview of who you are, and your work.
2. About me page 😎
Your about me page will be visited, a lot. Give your audience a sense of who you are, your design process, your values and skills.
3. Case studies 🧳
This is where you go into depth into each of your project case studies. You can view how to do this on this page: https://uxdesigncasestudy.com/ux-case-studies/
👉🏼 Note: These are the basic components, if you write articles, or have spoken at conferences, then you can include that as another section of your portfolio.
Why an online portfolio? 🤔
• PDF’s are big, hard to email, and get lost in the shuffle
• URLs are easy to add to a candidate profile, and are often required for UX applications
• Prototypes are hard to add into a pdf or a static platform
• URLs look more professional, and “branded”- you look serious about your UX career
It’s best to keep your portfolio simple and focused, don’t feel like you need to fill it up with other content 😉.
