Hey JJ Knowles,
Thanks for your sharing, it’s very interesting perspectives on UX portfolio, especially when everyone is expecting every designer to have one!
I totally agree with you, we might need no more portfolio to present who we are — when we have worked few years and already get some reputations in industries; however, for a junior designer just graduated from school, surely every designer has been through the stage, if they are not using a portfolio as a knocking brick, with little resources and connections, how could they start with broader opportunities? Regarding this situation, which is what I have encountered few months ago, do you have any suggestions to share with us?
Thanks again for your sharing! It really helps me in reflecting my own experiences.
