This week’s Design Tool Tuesday is atypical. Instead of covering a specific tool and its benefits, I’ll cover one of the burning challenges in the UX community: gathering enough strong material to make UX portfolio case studies shine. Using the product design challenge ideas I’ll share some tangible actions you can take today in order to come up with a side project that (if documented along the way) will result in a strong case study to add to your design portfolio. It doesn’t matter if you’re a total beginner trying to break into UX, product design or user research or are an experienced old-timer – the same principles when it comes to producing effective work examples apply. This video should, therefore, serve all cases.

In this new weekly UX design, user research, and product design tools series I’ll share some of the best picks I’ve encountered to date. You’ll find out about the best apps, extensions, websites, and other helpful tools.
