As UX professionals, we all struggle with how to represent and describe our work to hiring managers and others. For many UX roles in hiring, graduate admissions and for digital awards, the emphasis is increasingly on showing an effective and compelling portfolio comprised of stellar case studies of individual projects. But what exactly should go into a UX case study? How do you best showcase a project? And what if you've created something really great and want to share it with the world?
Beverly May, founder and organizer of the UX Awards, discussed how to create winning UX case studies as part of a standout UX portfolio. These case studies can be used to get a better job, get into a fabulous grad program or win international Awards and gain broad acclaim for your work.
The following slides are from Beverly May’s presentation given in Chicago (4/23/14), Washington DC (4/30/14), and New York City (5/1/14).
