How to document your UX portfolio project

Have a simple and clear structure

The UX process visualized here has a clear starting and end point
  1. Avoid long drawn out sections with extensive amount of text.
  2. Use a flow that has a beginning, middle, and end. My personal recommendation is to follow this flow — Research, Empathize, Ideate, Design, and Test.
  3. Label sub-sections with appropriate UX terms like ‘Usability Evaluation’, ‘User Journey Map’, ‘Information Architecture Chart’, and ‘Design System’. Sometimes, a hiring manager may only be interested in one aspect of your portfolio, so they should be able to easily navigate to it.

Articulate a clear problem statement and objective(s)

The problem statement in the scenario is more of question. That’s completely fine.

Label your sections (and sub-sections)

Have a balanced text to visual ratio
