Depending on the job you’re applying for, or the type of client you wish to attract, your portfolio should reflect the work you want to be doing, and even better still if it reflects the typical formats or workflows that you’ll be working with. For example, a designer wishing to get hired for work in print design is more likely to have a physical portfolio containing printed examples of work, where a digital artist may include links to a PDF or website showcasing theirs.
For those in the fields of interaction design, user experience and product design, it then makes sense that our work is presented through a medium that we’ll be working with routinely. Leveraging Adobe XD for portfolio website design allows us to create portfolio assets in a dynamic way, allowing for easy iteration, distribution, and feedback collection. The portfolio itself becomes a tangible representation of your capabilities as well.
In this guide you’ll be learning how to leverage XD portfolio website design in the context of a product, or user experience design role, but the same approach can be applied for interface, interaction, and marketing design specific roles, tailoring the projects to the work you wish to acquire.
