David Leisey

David was working as a teacher, but he wanted to transition to instructional design so that he could pursue his love of design and technology full-time. 

To help with his transition, he developed a polished portfolio site and a creative flagship project. This empowered him to approach the job market confidently and secure a sought-after role at Amazon Web Services.

David's site is simple but effective. It features a minimal logo, clear value proposition, and well-developed collection of projects.

In his flagship project, he incorporates animation to reinforce the story and facilitate behavior change. His supporting projects also demonstrate his visual design, eLearning development, and performance improvement skillset.

I came across Devlin’s content on his website and YouTube channel soon after discovering instructional design. I was impressed with his clear passion for helping others jump into this field. As a former teacher with a love of technology and design, I knew that an instructional design job would be a perfect fit for me. However, I lacked the clarity and direction necessary to create a well-rounded portfolio.

When Devlin’s Portfolio Bootcamp opened up, I immediately signed up and was excited to join instructional designers in various stages of their ID journeys. I also joined a fantastic small team of instructional designers within the bootcamp who challenged and encouraged me as I built my portfolio.

Devlin’s instructive feedback throughout different stages of the bootcamp was invaluable. Through the feedback and encouragement of Devlin and my team, I was able to create a solid portfolio website with multiple high-quality projects that showcase my skills. This gave me greater confidence leading into my job search, and I was able to land a Curriculum Developer position at Amazon Web Services.
