The UX Designer Nanodegree program is comprised of content and curriculum to support three projects, and one capstone.

I just graduated from the UX designer nanodegree and wanted to share my thoughts and experiences about the course. Udacity mentions that students will design impactful user experiences for products in today’s digital world. Build a portfolio that showcases your ability to transform user research to high-fidelity interactive designs.

For those of you watching that do not know what UX design means, here’s a definition from one of the instructors in the nanodegree. “UX Design is understanding user needs and designing solutions with those needs in mind. We create products to solve the problems of users. UX design is the process that reminds us of the needs of our users. Ultimately, products are used by humans and should bring value to humans.”

The User experience nanodegree consists of the following projects:
Project 1: Formulate a Research Report
Develop a research plan around a specific topic of choice, conduct semi-structured interviews with real-world participants, and synthesize findings into a report that highlights the insights and needs of users.

Project 2: Develop a Validated Low-Fidelity Prototype
Create, test, and iterate prototypes of a defined concept that addresses research-identified user needs using design sprint methodologies and data collected from usability testing.

Project 3: Create and Improve a High-Fidelity Design
Turn a low-fidelity prototype into a production-ready, high-fidelity design based on interaction principles, design styles, and engagement data.

Capstone Project: Build a UX Portfolio Case Study
Construct a starter portfolio that markets one’s personal value and UX design capabilities using completed projects from the nanodegree program.

Overall, I really enjoyed the course and enjoyed the structure of the projects. If you are thinking about getting in the course, then watch the ending of my review because I give some insights for people who want to get in and whether it is a good option for you or not.

Head Of Design Reviews A Graduate's UX Portfolio



Carrying out a UX portfolio review is essential. For more tips on optimising your portfolio, take a look at our blog here: https://careerfoundry.com/en/blog/ux-design/ux-design-portfolio-tips/

You might think your portfolio is the best thing since sliced bread, but you still need to test out your UX design portfolio to make sure it leaves the right impression on employers. Testing your portfolio on as many people as possible will give you a better perspective on whether it’s as good as you think it is!

In this UX Portfolio review video, CareerFoundry’s Head of UX Jeff Humble reviews UX Designer Miriam’s portfolio. He walks through what impresses employers about a portfolio, and what aspects of it could do with a little work. By casting his critical eye over the portfolio, he provides an extremely useful insight into what works on a portfolio, and what doesn’t.

UX Design Fundamentals: What do your users really see – Billy Hollis



Developers are often unaware of how their users actually see their screens. In this UX design session, we’ll discuss the most important principles concerning how the human brain and visual system determine how users see application interfaces.

We’ll look at Gestalt principles for grouping and highlighting, inattentional blindness and change blindness, how users scan through a view, and how to promote clarity in interfaces with levels of emphasis. Tests will help attendees see how they personally experience these principles, and better understand the challenges faced by their users when views and pages are not designed to respect design principles.

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!

UI/UX designers try different combinations to make their interface prototypes stand out! It’s always difficult to predict trends. You need to see what was popular and what becomes popular. It’s important to see how various technologies are used to understand what may become popular.

This video includes various UI design solutions that you need to pay attention to, as they may become popular in 2020. You need to consider using these solutions in your mobile applications or mobile versions of websites. All these solutions are provided by talented designers (all the rights belongs to them) from different parts of the world and you can also use this video as inspiration to create something amazing on your own.

➡️Your website or an application has to be ergonomic, so a user doesn’t waste time trying to find what they need
➡️Performance – the application or the website has to work fast

I remember when I was starting out and I felt so overwhelmed that I sometimes felt like I lost sight of what was important. I wish that someone told me this. Here are the 4 things that I would recommend focusing your energy on if you’re planning to apply for UX Product Design jobs this year. Remember, these aren’t the only things you should know, but it’s key to know this if you’re interviewing. UX fundamentals are a must, and these are the things that I would focus on once you’ve covered that 🙂
