From print to digital, UX to UI, all designers need to promote their work—and themselves—to employers. With a strong case study in your portfolio, you establish credibility and boost confidence in your designs. With an effective presentation, you can sell them, too.
In this capstone, you’ll create a case study documenting your improved design from start to finish. (For examples of UX case studies, see the Resources linked below.) Begin by giving the project context: summarize the problem, your goals, and the challenges you faced. Then, walk potential clients through your research, ideation, and solution, explaining your thought process and strategy at every step.
Next, create presentation slides or an MVP (minimum viable product) plan that sells your solution to stakeholders. Explain how your design solutions align with the product’s business goals and provide next steps for moving forward.
