Kelley decided she was ready for a change after 16 years in the classroom and the special education field. With a solid background in teaching and curriculum development, she knew instructional design was right for her.
She spent time applying to ID roles, but after not hearing back from hiring managers or potential employers, Kelley decided to join the bootcamp. Upon enrolling, she was motivated to upskill in the technology and design effective learning experiences, and if you check out her portfolio, it clearly shows!
Kelley's portfolio uses a simple three-color scheme design that makes her site both visually-pleasing and inviting. She implements color to break up content and subtle animations that invite the user down the page and showcase her attention to detail.
Both projects in her portfolio showcase the full range of her ID skillset, and the AI project in particular shows her ability to research and stay current with new technologies in the industry.
Kelley worked on her flagship project for a real client and kept the project in scope by using action mapping while working with the SME to build her scenarios.
She integrated graphics that were appropriate for the scenarios with her client's existing branding style and guidelines. Even though such requests can present limitations in the visual design process, Kelley blended together all graphical elements in a cohesive way.
Her scenarios are super relatable and the consequences are immediately evident, which provide a level of feedback that shows she has the learner in mind.
To help her further stand out, Kelley created a quick showcase of how artificial intelligence can be used in the ID process. By sharing her perspective on the topic and her hope for AI in the future of the industry, she caught the attention of her current employer and landed a role.
