  • Updating Portfolio

    Okay, so if I were wanting to just update my portfolio, but I've been working as a graphic designer in a corporate setting for 5 years, what should I include?

    I've read that I should have 10-15 pieces, and that they shouldn't be more than 3 years old. Problem is that most of the pieces we work on are monthly mailers that look pretty much the same with little individual creative input.

    In an interview setting, I could probably show a couple of those and explain the process and use them to show off some technical software skills, but I'd be lacking in one of the most important parts - creativity. I've got it, I just have no current pieces to show. And this is exactly why I need to update it!

    So the question is... what's the best way to get these new pieces to really show my creativity? Do I just create my own projects? Would that hold up in an interview? Any suggestions?

      Reply to Illustrator: "colored" grain effect?

      Which grain type did you select from the drop-down menu. If you selected stipple, it will make it B&W. Otherwise, I don't know why you're getting that effect. Honestly, though, I tend to avoid raster-based...
