A strong portfolio highlights your skills and experience. We spoke with UX Design graduate, Makeeda Johnson, about her design process creating Trip.
Despite the COVID-19 outbreak, hundreds of BrainStation students recently graduated with Diplomas in UX Design, Web Development, and Data Science. We couldn’t be prouder of their achievements and the way they took everything in stride.
BrainStation’s full-time Diploma programs culminate with students producing an individual portfolio piece for their final Capstone project.
Here are some of our favorite Web Development projects from Winter 2020. You can also see all of our graduate’s projects on our hiring page.
