You may have seen a number of UX examples online but are still not sure what makes them work?

Is it the colors, the layout or the type of projects?

I am starting a series on UX and UI portfolio teardowns that you might benefit from in order to ultimately get a job. We will take guessing out of the way and focus in on what really works to land a job.

Cedric Ith

Today I look at Cedric Ith’s UX portfolio by quickly exploring his website, a single project and resume, to tease out the portfolio elements that helped him secure at and . You might not be targeting these companies (You don’t really rate them ;)) but there is still alot you can learn from how his portfolio is structured and translate that to your portfolio.

UX Engineer and Interaction Prototyper. Exploring VR/AR/MR.

This is not a comprehensive teardown but structured in such a way as to simulate a recruiter, potential team lead or creative director who have to go through a 50 resumes a day.


Let’s begin!!

Portfolio Website

Let’s dive into a project

Since the first one has a high likelyhood of being selected. Will go for that one.

And lastly for the resume.

Key Takeaways

So what lessons should you take away from UX portfolio examples?

  • Recruiters don’t have a lot of time to read through your portfolio. Ensure your best and most relevant work is the first one listed.
  • Have a download link to your resume.
  • Use testimonials as a powerful social proof.
  • Use language that is understandable for your headings.
  • 2–3 really good portfolio projects are enough to get you an interview and possibly the job
  • Between you LinkedIn, portfolio website and resume, ensure you use a consistent and relevant job role throughout.
  • Identify job keywords and ensure your resume has them.
  • List your experience first as this is what is most relevant to a recruiter or employer.
