A UX design portfolio needs to have the perfect balance of your design and thought process and visual design that is if you are applying for a UX/UI designer position. Recruiters these days look for more of your thought process; how you strategize and solve the problem and maybe later think about looking at your visuals. If you are applying for a purely Visual Designer based job role, visual design will play a major role then. Then again, it’s not just the visuals which matter but also the thought you applied when you came up with the visuals. What is recommended is having a balance in the number of process-oriented projects and visual projects. Also, it’s not about quantity, it’s all about the quality of work you present. It’s way better to present 1 or 2 exceptionally done projects rather than showing off 4-5 projects that do not hold testament to your skills.
