Hello all, I’m on my last assignment for my graphic design course. I have been looking around for advice on what to put, but I also wanted to hear from experienced professionals and possibly some recruiters. What do you guys look for? How many seconds do I have before I lose your attention? What are some styles you find boring? What would surprise you in a portfolio?
I also had a couple of ideas I wanted to draft into my portfolio. If you guys think they’re not realistic or bland, please do not hesitate to give me alternatives so I can understand what people look for.
- With the hardcopy portfolio, I want to dedicate a few spaces on the page with a QR code. With the code, I can link my digital portfolio as well as PDF versions of the designs I am presenting.
- For the digital portfolio, I had the idea of including interactives to allow browsers to physically go ahead and play around instead of just scanning and reading.
