Project portfolio: UX Designer

Katarzyna Marchocka by

Learn how to build your portfolio fast and easily!

Our new series #ProjectPortfolio is here to help you with building your competencies and careers in IT!

First, we started this program with Project Portfolio: Software Developer. But a portfolio is not only crucial when you’re a programmer. This time we’ll focus on building UX Designer’s portfolio. You’ll also see some vital differences between building a software developer’s and UX designer’s portfolio.

Let’s do it!

Step 1: Choose your tool for a UX prototype

Although a case study of your design process is the key element of your portfolio, you can upgrade it by moving your project from wireframes to a real interface.

For this exercise, we can recommend you Adobe XD in its free version. Our hackathon teams tested it when building their prototypes and had a lot of fun!

Step 2: Focus on the most important part: UX process case study

Now let’s move to the part which should take you the most time. But we promise – it’ll be worth it!
If you want to have a professional portfolio, a UX process case study is a must!

In the article we’ve chosen for you, you’ll learn how to present your process comprehensively:

  • Overview
  • Problem statement
  • Users and audience
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Scope and constraints
  • Process and what you did
  • Outcomes and lessons

Bonus: how to prepare a UX Writer and UX Researcher portfolios

All’s well if you’re a UX Designer and you’re able to present the result of a project designed on your own in your portfolio, UX Writers and UX Researchers might think. What about those who do equally difficult and important work but which effects on their own might look for some less spectacular (although for those in the know they don’t)? There’s a portfolio type for that, too!
