I’m applying for a UI position at a company that literally does Minority Report style interactive experiences for presentations and data visualization. By literally I mean that the founder of the company created the Minority Report concepts for the movie and turned that into an actual business.
Anyway, professionally I am all over the place but one place I am in is in UI design. However I have not spent a lot of time putting together any traditional UI design portfolio. So my question is about what counts as a strong UI design portfolio and whether or not developing an interactive experience showing my UI would miss the mark so to speak.
In other words, I actually don’t have a lot of UI experience in the workplace because I’ve mostly worked at a front-end developer in a more technical capacity. However I have UI/UX work relating to my personal, small business projects. I’m debating whether I should stick to a traditional portfolio with flat images showing UI design or if I should make an interactive experience example.
I don’t want to end up doing something that may be way off.
