UX portfolio review

One of our main resources is the UX portfolio review. Getting a fresh view on your work can help you become more visible within your design network.

By getting your portfolio reviewed by the Designer’s Toolbox you’re setting yourself up for that one design job or project you’ve been dreaming of. Get actionable tips and tricks to help bring your portfolio to the next level.

Here’s how it works. If you submit your UX portfolio, it will be reviewed by a senior UX designer. He will provide you with feedback and actionable next steps via mail or video chat. After that, you’ll be able to do some Q&A’s if there’s anything not clear.

With today’s number of devices, the amount of screen sizes you have to design for grows also. Sketch has a lovely feature to help you out. It is called Sketch layouts and grids. However, the layout and grid settings you use in Sketch are something you have to create yourself. There’s not a default setting you can use over and over. Until now!
