Reach far more customers

Another key benefit of a cool portfolio for freelancers is that is can help a UX designer reach more potential customers and get valuable design feedback from other designers.

In short, a UX design portfolio is a must-have regardless of whether you are a freelancer or are looking to work in-house.

What should a UX portfolio contain?

  • Personal introduction and contact information
  • Education background, awards and recognitions

How to make an awesome UX portfolio?

How to make an awesome UX portfolio

1. Showcase only your best work

To attract potential employers and customers quickly and easily, one of the best tips is only to select and showcase examples of your best designs.

Why? Quality counts. The better the samples you showcase on your portfolio, the more likely people will be to see and appreciate exactly what you can do.

3. How many projects should be included in a UX portfolio?

This will depend on your design experience.

For example, if you are new to UX design and have not completed many design projects yet, presenting up to five good projects will suffice. But if you are an UX design expert with many years’ experience, see if you can include as many as 20 examples of your design work to give a broader picture of your skills.

1. How to choose UX portfolio platforms?

Without professional website coding skills, designers looking to create the perfect portfolio need to choose the UX portfolio builder or platform that is just right for them. But how do they make that choice? What factors should they consider in choosing? Here are some tips: 

Figure out exactly what you are hoping to achieve 

These days, many UX portfolio builders and platforms are created for different purchases. So, first, figure out exactly what you are hoping to achieve so that you will be able to choose the one that is right for you.

Are you just looking to share your latest design work and get feedback?

Do you need a unique portfolio to attract employers?

Do you need a detailed portfolio to reach far more customers?

Different goals mean different needs. The portfolio platforms out there are all different. So choose carefully.

Evaluate the cost

Nearly all portfolio builders and platforms offer a free account, with payment only if you go on to use premium features. So, again, think of your goals and needs and calculate the likely cost before making your decision.

How long it will take to learn everything about the platform
