Building a design portfolio

What to show and how

About the course

Whether you are a seasoned practitioner or someone new to service design, a question that you will expect to hear at some point in time will be "Can we see your portfolio?".

In this course, you will learn about what a good portfolio looks like and understand why it is good. You will work through a framework to design a portfolio that reflects not only the work you have done (in the past) but you as a person and where you want to be in the future.

You'll hear from other seasoned professionals and talent managers in this course.
