  • Is there an issue with my porfolio? Can't get a call back.


    My name is Joshia and I'm new to the GDF as of today. I got laid off in May from my previous job. Since then I've been applying for at least one job a week. That's over 100 jobs with only one reply. It boggles my mind. Maybe my work isn't as good as I thought. It would be nice if some of you could take a look at it and provide any feedback they might see? Thanks, in advance.

    Did you use a website such as square space and by a .com, .org or some kind of real url for your portfolio? It would help if you did. The layout of your portfolio and design of your portfolio is also very important. I hope this helps.

      There are several things wrong with your "portfolio."
      But the first question I have is, are you contractually prevented from showing your work done with previous employers?
      According to your slim resume, you have been in the industry 20 years but there's not much here to show for it.

      The typos in the mock ups alone would get you binned immediately.

              Reply to Price of Foil vs. Varnish for business cards?
              Neither Foil nor Varnish are done on a digital press - you would have to get your Business Cards printed Litho. For 100 cards this is always going to be expensive - you could probably get 2000 cards...

              With body text, one tends to want use a simple serif for easier reading. Like B and PrintDriver have said, who is reading the magazine and even the genre of the content will dictate the typeface. I used...

              Reply to Please critique my jazz poster
              Coloring can make or break a piece. Jazz tends to be a moody, soulful music. The lime green does not fit that moody feel and it might have been better if you pushed you color scheme a bit further to add...
