UX Design portfolio tips and how to prepare for internship interviews (Interview with Grace Dai)

Grace Dai was a Product Design Intern on my team at Zendesk last summer and worked our Sunshine product team. Her internship portfolio presentation was one of the most memorable I’ve listened to, so I sat down with her to learn more about how she prepared for the interviews.

Grace was so generous and actually walks us through in detail the presentation version of one of her portfolio projects.

Huge thanks to Grace for this interview!

I’m a digital Product Designer, Community Manager, YouTuber, amateur photographer, and basketballer. I’ve been living in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2012 and have dedicated my life to designing technology and experiences in order to help maximize human potential. I believe that meaning comes from making, emotion is the force of life, and as long as you’re creative enough, playful enough and determined enough — that you can get through to anybody.

I draw inspiration from a lot of people. Here’s a short list of some of my favorites: https://www.alexaleighh.com/inspiration

My motto: Practice happy, practice often
