My Experience with Creating a UX Portfolio

First, a little bit about me:

I recently transitioned into UX/UI from a background in music. Fortunately for me, my background in music has many similarities with UX and also provided me with some of the technical skills necessary for UI (primarily Adobe Illustrator).

I took two courses through BrainStation and am on track to finish UX Academy at DesignLab by the end of the month — and part of finishing involves having a fully functional UX portfolio.
