What's the No. 1 priority for our UI/UX Design students? Building a design portfolio that stands out. 

We often hear from design hiring managers that they receive cookie-cutter portfolios. A successful UI/UX design portfolio is unique. It doesn't just contain pretty, high-resolution images of the end product; it provides key insights into your thinking and process. It should share who are as a person, designer, and problem-solver.

If you're looking for some inspiration, check out these example portfolios from Springboard design graduates.
