UX Designer bio

Learn how to write a better UX Designer bio, Writing your bio is hard, but it doesn’t have to be.

It is difficult to get a long ride. It can be exhausting and the complications are often unforeseen. But it has its advantages: I binge podcasts, explore new songs, and even have epiphanies — like this post. When I just switched off my car audio and let my brain do its thing, so many realizations came to me.
The backstory: I’m actually two-thirds of the way into a 10-week full-time UX design boot camp, and we’ve just completed our fourth project — portfolios. I was not too concerned about this section of the portfolio. Yet the “About Me” tab was a whole different story. I was just throwing some interesting stuff on the page before, and calling it a day. Why on earth can I write an expert bio?

Why is writing a BIO hard?

I have been bombarded with tips, tricks and advice in just the last few weeks alone. Between what I’ve heard at meetups, taught in seminars and watching what my fellow students are doing, I’m distracted by a million and one things I should and shouldn’t do when it comes to writing my bio.
Since just struggling to get sentences on a screen for a couple weeks, I actually sat down and started talking about what my ultimate aspirations are: I don’t want to come off as pretentious. But I want to always sound polite, and well, knowledgeable.
I want someone to really read my bio and get a sense of who I really am as a human.
I want people to make it to the very last word.

How to write better BIO

It’s better said than done like I said earlier. It took a car ride insight to see that it would make for a better bio when I just concentrated on how I write naturally and on being honest. It’s cheesy, so you’re the one out there and the only one who knows how to be you. In my view this should be mirrored in your profile.
Look, I am no expert. I’m not a recruiting boss, but a recruiter. I’m new to the UX sector and my profile is still up and running. It does not meet the expectations of certain people and it isn’t nearly flawless everywhere. But when I take a step back and focused on being myself instead, it’s a heck of lot closer to where I want it to be.


Think on when you went into your first profession when you are switching careers. What went wrong? What didn’t happen? What makes you want to get interested in this new career? Why does it suit better? When did the decision come about?
What are some of your priorities and your passions? In reality let’s continue smaller. What is it you are doing for fun? Were there any odd quirks? Are you interested with something outside of the work? Why do you do things like this? What is it that makes you think with things you’ve done?

Answer these naturally and if it helps, record it on your camera. After, correct spelling and bad grammar and BAM! You’ve got a profile.
These kinds of questions have the juices going and concentrate on what makes you and the story special. Trust me; this might only bring you to realizations that you didn’t think were coming.
