I'm relatively new to the field of IxD/IA/UCD and was wondering what constitutes a good portfolio. Are there any examples anyone would be willing to share?
Also, as I'm looking to build my mine and get more inxperience in the field of IxD, any information as to where I can find part-time work (as I'm currently working full-time) in the NYC area would be greatly appreciated. I've hit up some of the usual hot spots such as eLance and Craigslist, but have not had any luck so far.
I've been in the UX field for 3+ years now but I keep hitting a series of bumps (starting with a layoff in 2009) that have prevented me from expanding my professional design portfolio. The majority of my professional work has revolved around usability evaluation and user research, although I have done some design work professionally, on the side, and in grad school. For the past year, my professional work has focused on usability testing and user research.
I just came across 37Signals' Sortfolio (http://sortfolio.com/),
which allows users to filter through portfolios.
It reminded me a little of Google's Fast Flip
(http://fastflip.googlelabs.com/), although that interface offers
minimal filtering and meets different user needs.
I'm interested in finding similar interfaces that showcase pages and
allow extensive filtering. Can you think of any more examples? (It'd
be nice if they were as well-executed as Sortfolio, naturally.)
Hi, I need to design a portfolio page very fast.the page should show
that we work close to apple standards as well as the portfolio
products need to be highlighted. http://www.cadile.com/portfolio.html
heres the link...Looking forward for your suggestions.
Can anyone suggest a resource for professional portfolio reviews? As
so many of us have migrated from other fields, creating a
straightforward portfolio is more difficult. The budding IxDA
mentorship initiative may eventually provide an opportunity here, but
I'm looking for something available now.
Moreover, I haven't found much in the way of IxD-specific portfolio
tips. (Thanks SCAD and this site for a couple good tidbits). Thanks
for any help anyone can offer.
I'm curious as to how other interaction designers display and speak to their
work on job interviews, and what techniques, devices, layouts, methods, etc.
resonate with those hiring them.
I usually bring printed samples of my work and paperclip them together into
different projects. That allows me to take all the flow diagrams,
wireframes, etc. and spread them out on a table and talk about them page by
I have no idea what this site is selling/promoting/describing/explaining as
it's in Dutch and more than a little weird but I love the exploratory
interface. Highly playable for a Friday, ultimately pointless but shows me a
new executional approach.
I recently changed the format of my portfolio to a Wordpress blog
(from a cool, but difficult to maintain Flash site). I've also
updated the content in the portfolio and would like to get some
feedback (off list to avoid a crush of email in everyone's inboxes).
The majority of my work for the last year has been outside the more
normative forms of IxD such as interface design or IA, and I would
like some more seasoned opinions on the work.
