So, aside from at work projects i am also wanting to redo my portfolio. I thought this would be a good opportunity to use you guys as my team. I was thinking of coming up with an initial strategy, then posting it for feedback. Then do some research into others portfolios and come back and have design discussion with you guys.
Since you are all ux pros, you could stand in as potential audience members and take some quick surveys during the research phase. It would help to determine if im asking the right questions while at the same time getting awesome feedback.
Just a thought... Let me know if its too ambitious lol
