A UX research portfolio is a collection of research projects and findings that showcases a UX researcher’s skills and experience. It is typically used to apply for jobs or to showcase a researcher’s work to potential clients or employers. A UX portfolio should include the following elements:
- Detailed descriptions of the research projects included in the portfolio, including the goals, objectives, and methodology used.
- Examples of the research findings, such as user personas, journey maps, and affinity maps.
- Evidence of the impact of the research on the design process, such as design changes or improvements based on the research findings.
- Examples of the researcher’s ability to communicate research findings to stakeholders and teams, such as presentations or reports.
A UX research portfolio should be well-organized and easy to navigate, with clear descriptions of each project and the research process used. It should very clearly highlight the researcher’s ability to conduct thorough, high-quality research and use the findings to drive design decisions.
