In December 2016 we kicked off a New Years portfolio challenge for our community. We partnered up with .design, and gave away more than 500 free .design domain names to Hacking UI readers.
The brief was simply to do a portfolio re-design, while keeping it simple and focusing on presenting the work in a proper way.
Update Jan 26th 2017: Challenge has ended. Check out the showcase of selected portfolios. Remind me.. What are the prizes again? The 1st place will get: A one-hour consultation session with us (David & Sagi) to discuss your portfolio and create a strategy to build your personal brand You get a FREE spot in the…
We’re excited to share that we have teamed up with .design domains to bring to you The New Year’s Portfolio Challenge!
This is a 1-month challenge that we want you all to participate in.
To incentivize you, we’re giving you a free .design domain name to build your site on!
Join us on for the live webinar in which we’ll share and discuss the results of the survey (and in which Sagi will also give a brief Sketch tutorial)
We’ve partnered with the amazing team at General Assembly, and created this survey to better understand the state of the industry and get a clearer picture of the tools that designers use to craft the digital products that the world uses.
Today we are joined by Rizwan Javaid, a member of The Side Project Accelerator. Rizwan is a UX designer who is passionate about transforming ideas into engaging and profitable digital solutions. He is based out of California and works on a variety of projects both for mobile and web. Rizwan is also a blogger and international speaker, who pushes his boundaries to reach new audiences and inspire them to release their creativity. He started speaking about sketching, as he found it helped him in a variety of ways, and now has several talks and a brand focused on the power of sketching.
Jason started out by getting companies to pay him to wear their T-shirts for a living. He then sold his last name, twice, and wrote the world’s first ever fully-sponsored book. Now he is in the middle of what might be his craziest stunt yet. He’s quite literally selling his future, and he’s doing it so he can help creative professionals take action and make money doing what they love.

This is the first episode of the second season of the Hacking UI podcast, ‘Scaling a Side Project’. In this season we interview designers, developers, and creative entrepreneurs who built and scaled successful side projects that we admire. Today we are excited to have Bryn Jackson on the show. Bryn is the co-founder of Spec.fm, which features the popular podcasts Design Details, Developer Tea, and more.
David was fortunate today to sit down and have a great conversation with author and UX researcher Victor Yocco. With Victor he discusses how UX research fits into the workflow, what it takes to create a really good experience, and how user psychology comes into play in design.
