Doing a UX project and showing that project in a portfolio- are two VERY different things requiring 2 altogether different skillsets.
Portfolio making is an art and is equally challenging, if not more than doing a good UX project. It's a herculean task and most of the UX beginners just shove all the designs they make into a meh looking portfolio. In. this course, you'll learn the art of making a captivating portfolio that tells amazing stories of your projects and gets you back that interview call from your dream organization. I have interviewed with companies like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Bosch, etc. and I've also won many national and international design competitions; so I know what it takes to make breathtaking portfolios, projects, and case studies. In this course, I've synthesized ALL my learnings over the years to make an advanced UX portfolio making guide which will help you irrespective of your work experience. It'll be beneficial for anyone looking to make a UX portfolio.
I've included numerous real-world examples of portfolios and case studies across the course as asked by many students. This will help you internalize the course contents and you'd be able to make the most out of this course.
Course structure and topics covered:
This course has a lot of content packed in the 32 lectures. This is probably the most elaborate and detailed course you'll ever encounter on the topic of UX portfolio. You'll all see both, basic and advance content in this course. Given below is a rough outline of the course and what you'll learn in each section.
First, you'll learn how to make amazing case studies and tell compelling stories. That's the heart of a portfolio - case studies.
Next, you'll see an in-depth analysis of each and every component of a good portfolio. I've broken down all the portfolio components in individual sections and I'll showcase each one of them with real examples.
I've also included a complete section of real portfolio examples where we'll analyze the portfolios and see what's good and what's bad in each one of them. You'll learn the best practices from the pros and cons of these examples.
You cannot be completely ready for a UX hiring process with your portfolio alone. So, I've included a UX interview section where you'll learn about different types of UX interviews and how you could prepare for them.
Lastly, based on FAQs of multiple students, I've included a bonus tips and tricks section where you'll learn tips, tricks and best practices regarding UX such as getting your first project, making a great résumé, etc. I'll continue updating this section so keep an eye on it.
Making a UX portfolio is HARD work but with a proper learning structure that you'll get in this course, you can become a UX portfolio ninja within a week or two. No matter what kind of projects you do, if you manage to grasp even 60% of this course, I'm sure you'll start receiving interview calls from top organizations.
So buckle up and let the learning begin!
