I’m doing my first UX portfolio on Wix. I have the case studies content drafted out, but I’m struggling with brainstorming wireframes/actual UI for my case studies. I make it a rule to look for dribbble/behance for inspo but only sketch when im not looking at things because I don’t want to copy directly.

I’ve tried using paper/thin markers highlighters, tried using procreate, and also illustrator/photoshop & a tablet. I keep running into issues where I feel overwhelmed. How do I simplify this?

You can wireframe on figma - makes your life easier. In the real world you wouldn’t start with paper and pencil but straight to mid fidelity


I was experiencing some creative ruts and managed to explore more brushes on procreate that made wire-framing more approachable :)

Looking for advice. I am thinking about doing a career switch from accounting to SWE. I have always had a passion in tech but was too afraid to make the change.

Do most SWE just become unemployable after reaching 40 something years old if you don’t get promoted to manager levels and above?

Hi! I'm new to fishbowl :)

I'm frustrated with the resources for advanced product designers to technically grow. Mentorship and critique sections with more senior people beyond working hours are exasuting thing to invest in. With I could study by myself.

Is it normal for a Product Owner to lay out specs for how a feature should work?

I thought that was my job as the ux designer to figure out the best way to solve a need. But I’m getting handed projects where the PO, and sometimes the senior designer has laid out exactly what should happen (components used, flow, etc) to design a feature. It’s really frustrating because I don’t know if I’m supposed to be speaking up on what I think or just do the UI work I’m asked to.

I’ve been interviewing with Google since July. Passed the first interview but the team I was matched with ended up hiring someone else. Recruiter told me that she will let me know if any other opportunities arise as I’m still in the running and haven’t been rejected. I know that interviewing with google is a long process but I’m worried the longer I wait the more likely I will be rejected or just never hear back. Anyone else in this situation? How long until you got an offer?

I took a UX class through UCLA Extension for a quarter and so far (from a fairly objective view) I'm ahead of the game than the rest of my peers since I already have a lot of transferrable skills like software & design skills. I'm planning to take one more quarter of class. Will that be enough to put together a portfolio along with architecture pieces?
