  • 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?
              Keep in mind the cost of the tooling the dye is a one time cost. The next lot of cards wont include the tooling cost.
              StudioMonkey is also correct of the cost vs. your volume. 100 cards may run...

              Joomla is my CMS of choice. For that matter, I'm working on some template modifications for a Joomla site this morning.

              For a small personal site, Joomla might be overkill. It's certainly...
