It's finally time to create a UX portfolio that you're proud of

If you’re sick of conflicting advice, vague feedback, and analysis paralysis – this is the class for you! This workshop is designed to help you make more progress on your portfolio in 1 day than you have in the last few months. We’ll go through a simple, step-by-step process to build case studies that get noticed. Think of it as “fill in the blanks” for showing off your projects. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have made tangible improvements to your portfolio, and will have the exact framework you need to keep up the momentum.
