I came across an article called studygraphics.com. The website talks about change in Technology and how it changes graphic design art, freelancing or regular job after graphic design program, and how to find a good freelancer for graphic designing. The two sections that I found interesting was the section that talks about boosting your graphic design skills and graphic designer portfolio.
Some Key Points I took out:
A portfolio is suppose to create a good impression on your client or the person who is interviewing you. Only put your good work in your portfolio, some places wont hire you if your work isn’t consistent throughout.
Internships, training, part time jobs, ect. help make your portfolio even better, it shows that you can do more then just projects assigned in school.
Always carry your portfolio in a good-looking carrying case. (decorate it and be creative)
Another way of presenting your work is, making the soft copy of your work by making presentations. People mostly prefer to see the soft copies rather than the hard copies.
These are just a few things I took from this article. I found my self taking more information from the “Graphic Design Portfolio” then any other section.
Hope you guys enjoy!
