One of the primary purposes of your portfolio (besides giving you exposure and a job) is to demonstrate your ability to think like a UX designer. To tell the story of how you got from point A to Point B.

Use compelling storytelling as a tool to engage the user (i.e., your potential new job). Surprise them with peculiar findings.

The about section is your chance to be yourself, but don't overdo it. Remember to include a well-communicated and concise UX designer resume.

Keep it simple.
