I'm planning to prepare a portfolio for my upcoming job search. Since I'm a
recent grad and don't have much industry experience, I won't be able to
show any commercial product or corporate website I designed. However, I
believe I can show my interaction design skills and usability knowledge
through my past school and side projects.
The questions is how?
Interaction designers are not like visual designers who can easily show
their skills visually. For example, graphics designers can show the
logos and icons they designed through images. But how can we demonstrate our
user research, UCD, usability evaluation skills on an online portfolio.
The second question is: what to highlight in an ID portfolio?
In my experience, ID work expands the entire UCD cycle. So, shall I
demonstrate I have knowledge from task analysis, requirements gathering to
usability test result analysis or shall I concentrate more on the design
What is people's experience in creating online portfolio? suggestions?
