Samson Blond's Portfolio Project
During the CareerFoundry UX Design Program, you’ll build out a job-ready portfolio. Here is a breakdown of graduate Samson’s portfolio project, Starwalt; a responsive web app that provides property buyers with information on properties of interest.
Samson’s background is a far cry from his current vocation: he previously created and ran a successful catering company in the heart of Paris. From there, he introduced a new business framework to global live music platform Sofar Sounds Paris. For Samson, it was UX design that he felt combined all of his past experiences and skills.
What inspired you to make a career change into this field?
“I moved into this field because I wanted to move out of the catering world, where I was running a company with a friend. I always had an interest in the tech world and knew there was an abundance of jobs. Through a buddy, I landed an internship in a creative agency where my interest grew for UX and UI design and the whole design process. After some time, I decided I wanted to deepen my UX understanding, so I took a CareerFoundry course”.
