Camp Case Study is now over. But you can still work on your case study with Amanda by signing up for UX Portfolio PowerPlay™, Amanda's 6 week group coaching program to take your portfolio from cookie-cutter to uniquely YOU.Check out UX Portfolio PowerPlay™
You sit down to work on your portfolio only to realize you
The purpose of a case study is to tell the story of your project and the work you did. It should have a clear beginning, middle, and end.
A lot of case studies I see are... boring. They don't have a clear direction; they don't share the messy aspects of what didn't work; and they leave me guessing what role the designer really had.
Imagine instead you walk into an interview and confidently talk through your project. The hiring manager is nodding along and points to some of your graphics to ask deeper questions. They turn to a colleague saying how they wish they had documented a similar project this way.
Join UX Hustle for a 3 day case study challenge on November 1-3!
Picking the right project is the most important step. Designing and building a case study takes time and energy so we want to make the most of it!
We'll craft the story of your case study, determine what metadata we may want to include, and write out all the details of your case study.
We'll talk about different tools you can use, list all the artifacts you need to gather or create, and talk about visual storytelling.
After shifting my career into UX and landing my first UX job 4 days out of my bootcamp, I quickly realized a career is more than a job title.
Just like we want to make sure we're solving the right problem in UX, we also want to apply to the right positions. But at the same time, the UX job market moves fast.
Using the processes I share in UXPPP, I was able to get clear on my career non-negotiables so that I could apply, confidently land the interview, and love my job beyond the 3 month mark.
