How To Turn Your Passion Into Your Design Project

22 April 2021 6:00 pm LT Online UI Design , UX Design

How can you showcase your personality and passions through your design project? It can be tricky trying to not only combine the two, but also to get other people as excited about it as you are. Watch this video to find out how. 

Your design project (and your portfolio) is the core part of your UX/UI journey, so why not craft one that not only says “This is what I can do” but also “This is what I’m passionate about”? In this panel of CareerFoundry design alumni, hosted by Sami Gardner and Ashley Sigmon, we’ll see different ways of creating and presenting your passion project, as well as discussing the potential pitfalls along the way.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s important that your UX/UI design project focuses on something you really care about
  • How to pull off showcasing your passion in your design project 
  • The best ways to show off your personality and perspective in your designs
  • Overcoming impostor syndrome and self-doubt when presenting your passion project

If you’re currently considering a career in UX or UI design or have already started your journey, and want to learn how to make it relevant to your own passions, then this video is packed with actionable information and advice.
