I am a soon-to-be graduate who is starting to prepare and put together a portfolio for UX Design as a Full Stack designer. I have some questions regarding UX portfolios, and I'm looking for some advice and inspiring examples to help me understand what companies are looking for in these portfolios.
- From the companies that I've researched so far, it seems that there are some who expect the portfolio to tell a compelling story describing the process and methodologies used in each piece of work, while others prefer a very minimal approach to allow your work to speak for itself. Which is the better way to organize my work?
- I understand it's given that my portfolio should be custom-tailored to match the needs and tone of the company I am applying to. How common is it for applicants to tailor the portfolio specifically for just one company as opposed to one they can use universally for the multiple companies they are looking at?
- I am having some difficulty finding good examples of UX portfolios that describe the methodologies they use in their projects. What's a good way to show things like personas and scenarios without taking too much away from the actual visuals and final product?
That's all the questions I have for now. Thank you for all your help in advance, I really appreciate it!
