Ian Fenn is a Senior Product Designer at tails.com. Since 2014, he has been advising other designers on how to represent their value effectively to potential clients and employers.
Ian is the creator of the popular UX Portfolio Essentials course. Here is how Ian describes his talk:
Portfolios are required for designers, researchers, strategists, and managers. Yet, most people in our field do not want to show off their work. In many respects, we do not understand the essentials of a killer portfolio until we see it.
In this session, Ian Fenn will explain the essentials of your portfolio. He will give practical tips and tricks to make sure you show the best version your “self” in your portfolio. In addition, Ian will explain the importance of treating your portfolio like a product that you design.
You will not want to miss this session. You will walk away with a better portfolio and ways to show the best version of yourself. Plus, you will have some real-world strategies that work with hiring managers and recruiters.
