Top Tips

  • We would love to see a great portfolio with all of your best work. Make sure that the work in your portfolio is a true reflection of your abilities – be it art, iconography, clever solutions to tricky design issues or code examples to solve complex issues.

  • If you are just starting out in UI Art or UI Design, and your portfolio is not fully developed, try recreating UI from your favourite games, putting your own spin on it. Could you improve the UI in some area? This is a great way to bolster your UI portfolio and show us what talents you have! 

  • It is great having screenshots of your UI Art or UI code, but we equally like to read about it too. We like to understand why you did certain things, how you could improve your work if you had more time, if you worked in a group etc. Be sure to annotate your portfolio so we understand your process and problem solving.
