As many here, I’m looking to break into UX Design. I’m working on acquiring skills & knowledge via online resources, and on creating my portfolio. I’m looking for some advice regarding my projects choice and my portfolio hosting.
1. Projects choice
I don’t have any direct UX design experience as yet, so I was thinking of creating a portfolio based on 3 projects:
The first one would be using a HR process improvement I’ve actually been working on for about 2 years, and explaining how I’ve applied UX design principles all along (I’ve spent the last 3 years in the internet industry - so, even in HR, UX matters!).
The second and third projects I’m thinking of are not real projects I’ve worked on, but more about creating 2 apps (a music app and a travel app) in order to solve a specific problem. So, most of what I will write will be hypothetical, and I’ll have no actual app to showcase.
Do you think using these examples will be sufficient as a start before I manage to get my first real UX design experiences?
2. Portfolio hosting
What solution would you recommend to use? I don’t intend to create and host my own website for now, and I’d rather have a “minimum viable product” to start with.
- Are websites builders like Wix ok?
- What about portfolio builders?
- Which one do you use?
