  • Portfolio Advice


    Hi all,

    I am currently in the process of updating my portfolio and was after some advice on the best format to use. A friend of mine told me about a company that can use images of my print work to construct a hard back book A4 in size which I thought would look quite professional. They normally offer the service to people who want to put together a photo album and allow the customer to create their own layout for each spread.

    I was going to supply them with jpegs for each page so they can put together a book with details on each project accompanying a picture of what was produced. I will take printed copies of certain projects as well so any interviewer can actually handle what I have worked on.

    Or should I go down the traditional route and display my work in a black leather portfolio case with plastic sleeves?

    Any other suggestions would be helpful!

    Cheers
    Dan

    One of the downfalls of the printed book idea is that you won't be able to interchange your pieces. Alot of people will have portfolio pieces mounted and for each interview put certain pieces into their portfolio case to better suit the type of interview.

      Yep I agree the book idea does have a lot of limitations, I think I will mount my work onto board and put the boards loose in my portfolio instead of in the plastic sleeves. Unless anyone else has an effective alternative?

        It's an old thread, but I'll jump in.

        1. Too many people regard designers as simply being those with the tool-using skills to implement client ideas and make suggestions about making things...

        Looks nice, but as Kayekaye said, the shadows need some work. Shadows are never an even gray. In the real world, the shadows very close to where the balls meet the surface would be nearly black and fade...

        I'll suggest soaking up everything you're told -- even when it's with a grain of salt. At this point your professors know more than you, and there'll be plenty of time a ways down the road (when you've...

        I don't think today's typesetting is comparable to Gutenberg's work. It's a bit like comparing the Wright brothers to contemporary aviation engineers. Both Gutenberg and the Wright brothers made huge,...

        If this is for you as a designer its is way too busy. Do some research and design a much more streamlined layout based on a grid.
