How to Become a UX Designer

Last night I was at a meetup for new designers. Some experienced managers and I reviewed people’s portfolios and gave them mentoring and advice. Alot of the advice I gave them reminded me a presentation I gave last year titled How to become a UX Designer. I figured I should post it.

Most of my presentations have very little text. This one has a bit more. However, it probably still doesn’t make that much sense without the talk track.  So if it doesn’t make sense, then just ignore it.

Ill try embedding them below. Your mileage may vary.
