List of Top UX Design Portfolios (Updated 2019)

This will be a continually updated list of UX Design Portfolios I admire. 

Ah, the UX portfolio. Annoyingly hard to build, ridiculously essential for getting a UX job.

In the years, I’ve written about how to quickly create a UX portfolio and how to create a content-first portfolio. I’ve even published a popular course on creating a UX portfolio.

Throughout that time, I ended up cataloguing & saving a wide range of impressive UX portfolios. These portfolios are not the usual that you find on other lists – you’ll find not only new and upcoming UX designers, but also get reasons why I selected each portfolio to include in this list. Let’s begin!

Buzz Usborne

  • Notable Case Study: Atlassian is his most UX heavy case study, the others are more focused on UI and product design.
  • Great example of: no-frills (but elegant) design that prioritizes top case studies and separates out older work in a “more” section. Great example of how to visualize work with large, gorgeous images that feature interaction design details.

Elise Fu

  • Good example of: presenting her work at startup in a comprehensive, authoritative way that first led to a UX internship at Google, and then parlayed into a full time Product Designer position at Facebook.
  • UX Career Coaching Alum

Jenn Stack

  • Notable Case Study: FX Trade Light Mode
  • Great example of: case studies that are long, but well-paced. Good use of rhythm between words, visuals and layout make her work a pleasure to read.
