UX/UI Portfolio

User-Centered or User-Experience Design (UX) is an exciting and rapidly expanding field. In this course, the fifth and culminating course in the certificate, students will be guided through a five week process to create a professional portfolio demonstrating their UX/UI capabilities. Topics in this course include the importance of understanding the self for guiding design, how design is story-telling and ways for you to relate your portfolio to your design approach, and hands on methods to guide the portfolio creation with presentation tips. Along the way the instructor will bring in design and UX/UI professionals to speak about the industry and answer questions. At the end of the course students will gather online to share their portfolio and experience. Applications used in this course are freely available and no purchase of software is required.
