Design Schools in the US have very special admission criteria. With people coming from all different education backgrounds, it becomes very important to have a compelling portfolio. It’s not rocket science to elaborate on something you love doing everyday. There are many ways in which you can show your love and greater interest for design and art.

Understand that UX is not just about graphic design or Information architecture or interaction design or user research.


COVID 19 has disrupted the entire design community. It has put up a barrier on the way we work. We are locked up at home, we have limited mobility, we cannot leverage the benefits of design collaborations on a whiteboard, we cannot do field trips and spend time with users and we can’t go out for ice-creams on Fridays as well.
Everything went virtual. This virtually helps us learn new things, we adjust to new normal, we change our working style, our sleep habits have changed and the customer who uses our products is also evolving like us. We…

Importance of Use Cases
