I am currently in my Junior year studying ID. In school, we are asked to incorporate the entire design cycle and while I appreciate the holistic approach, I yearn to invest more in research, strategy, and design thinking.
My passion for research is rooted in gaining a deep understanding of users; from culture and experience to psychology and needs. Subsequently, I've studied the leaders in this field (IDEO, RKS' P/A, etc.)
Ultimately, I am open to any ID related internship, so I decided to treat my portfolio as a sneak-peak, emphasizing the breadth of skills I’ve learned in college. Some of the most consistent feedback I’ve received is if more info is needed, I can present the interviewer with a process book that thoroughly explains the thought behind each project.
- Do you have suggestions on how I can maintain a condensed portfolio while emphasizing research/process?
- The forum is full of information for students, however, is there anything specific you can recommend regarding my portfolio and career interest?
