Creating the ideal portfolio as UX/UI designers
The ideal way to present your portfolio would be in the form of a PDF. However, another creative way would be to depict it through a website. As designers you should ensure that this website is easy to navigate as you need to keep the user in mind at all times.
Use images and provide a visual design guide to the hiring manager to highlight your previous project work. You can find more useful tips on how to stand out as a UX/UI designer, here.
