      Is any of your stuff for real clients?

      That book mockup is really sloppy. Look at the bindings and the very bottom cover edge.

      While these mockup things might be a trend, if you seem to imply these types of things are real, you will get binned immediately. Mockups are sort of ok for showing to clients, if relevant, but only if they are done quickly and to some extent show a comp of a real world application. But they really have no place in a portfolio. Anyone can do mockups with templates. And templates like these are not what your client is going to be ordering for signage. In order to get work along this avenue, or a job working for a studio, you need to show that the logo designs as signage or book covers, or business cards or imprinted stationery, or whatever, were actually executed using real photos of the real thing, or the real thing itself. If you do swanky stationery, request a few sheets extra when printed. If you do high end business cards, ask your client for a couple. If you do signage, show the shop drawing, fabrication steps and the actual installed sign in situ. None of this template junk.

        Your work looks nice, and I like it. You have design talent and it clearly shows.

        However, as PrintDriver suggested, as a collection of work, it doesn't come across as real. Real projects typically have the usual hallmarks of the designer having to make the best of less-than-perfect situations.

        As for a specific suggestion, the ASTGHIK CARAVAN beer logo needs more attention paid to kerning. It almost reads at ASTGHIK CAR A VAN. You need to remove some of that space from around the A.

          All very good points. Thank you for your feedback, this is greatly appreciated.

            Hi Aregvan, "Tampere" caught my eye. I really like how you highlighted different parts of the letters.
            Out of curiosity, what is the concept behind the highlighted letters and how does it connect to a comfortable hotel?

            Perhaps the contrast could increase slightly to make it a little more noticeable.

              Graphic design almost always centers around a point, and that point usually has to do with influencing a target audience. Attractiveness -- as in looking good -- is typically more effective in doing that...

              In my opinion, work that's simply attractive won't necessarily lower the value of your portfolio, but you would come off as a much better candidate (for anything) if the pieces you show are accompanied...

              I will say (and it's not a guarantee, but it can help), if you live in a big enough metroplex, sign up with a placement agency. Our company has used Aquent and Creative Circle. We've hired on contractors...
