Do User Researchers need a portfolio?

In the past 18 months, we have seen the demand for user researchers explode and it is great to see businesses finally take this part of the design life cycle seriously. The contract market has become a very lucrative place for researchers. This is partly down to the government sector paying attractive day rates but this has snowballed into other industries as well as impacting the permanent market. In the past five years, research has always played second fiddle to the more recognised UX Architect role but now they are on a level playing field, if not slightly edging it. One question we are continuously asked is "how do I showcase my projects and do I need to be creating a portfolio?"

Top tips on how to create a portfolio

Top UX Events to Attend in 2016

The New Year is well underway and the design community is packing its diary with really interesting events to cater to everyone’s needs. There is a real variety of content being delivered and it’s very tricky to make sure they don’t pass you by. At Futureheads we are in the thick of it either sponsoring, attending or even hosting events, so I thought it would be good to give you a quick overview of what’s happening this quarter.
