I'm starting the hunt for my next design role. Here are a few things I'll be looking for:
Sound like your team or one you know?
"A strong portfolio that shows examples of UX, interaction, and visual design work"
For the past year or so, I've been offering quick & dirty portfolio reviews for designers. A combination of fresh-eyes feedback and actionable advice, I've helped hundreds of designers gain a new perspective and some next steps for improving their portfolio websites.
Join me most Thursdays at 6pm Pacific at twitch.tv/ux_adam for fresh portfolio reviews.
In an increasingly competitive market, a portfolio website that stands out is important for a designer's career.
After reviewing hundreds and hundreds of design portfolio websites over the past 5 years, I'm still seeing many of the same common mistakes and missed opportunities.
To help UX and Product Designers make great first impressions and have a better chance at landing in great fit roles, I'm working on an online course. The e-course will introduce a framework and a step-by-step process to craft stronger case studies and a more effective design portfolio site.
