How many "products" (apps/websites) should I include in my portfolio?

Hi everyone, question from a UX student - how many products should I be including in my portfolio? And does each piece have to show the full process cycle (i.e. from research to design to testing to final product, and iterations)?

Thanks for your help in advance :slight_smile:

Hi @kacheekmonstar – great question! I’m not sure that I can answer with an optimal number of projects, but what I can do is point you to this article that collates 10 of my favourite portfolios which should give you an idea of what works and what doesn’t. The answer to your second question is more simple – yes. Communicate your process as much as you possibly can, with annotations where relevant.
