How to Make Building Design?
Two years ago, I was finishing my last semester of college and preparing for the seminal moment in a design student’s life: portfolio reviews and finding a job. And even though I was finishing a degree in graphic design, I was looking for a full-time job as a UX/UI designer.
But it was a painful process. I got a lot of rejection emails and made a lot of mistakes. Now that I’m building a company that creates new UX designers on a daily basis, I can look back at my old portfolio and pass on those lessons learned. Here are 8 things that I got right and wrong.
6. Make your portfolio easy to navigate
Today, I have to conduct user interviews, meet with stakeholders, design a sticker, approve a UI change, prototype some concepts for a new feature, and review the last 20 resumes that’ve come in.
I have to quickly separate the good portfolios from the bad.
I have—at best—2 minutes per portfolio.“Your portfolio should be easy to browse on mobile.”
I’ve seen beautiful, neat, innovative work. I’ve seen designers experiment with interesting layouts and wonderful site designs. But if I find myself lost—if I can’t navigate your site quickly and easily, I’m frustrated.
