Quite a few typos in the resumé section - I appreciate English may not be your first language, however, these types of typos can often become make or break in deciding who gets the job if it came down to you against 2 or 3 other candidates - or even a big project when working as a freelancer.
The software has spellchecks. But not all ‘spell checks’ ‘pickup’ on grammatical errors, as I am demonstrating here, with subtle ‘clue’.
spellcheck - pick up - clues …
In your portfolio, you have Book Marks - where it should be Bookmarks.
You should really have someone proficient in English read through your portfolio to fix things.
That being said already I’ll leave you to fix the typos - it’s a pretty big deal.
What I don’t get is all the great work you have done - then your portfolio is nowhere near the same standard of design as the work you have created for others.
The design of your portfolio looks really outdated.
I don’t get the About Me page - you say you’re a graphic designer on the cover then the About Me page has you taking photos… I don’t get that.
Bachelors 2019-2003 - in what?
2019-Present you are holding down 3 jobs?
Skills section - it took me a minute to realise that you’ve ranked your own skills in the software by using an arc around the AI PS AE and PR to show your proficiency in each piece of software.
-------->>>>Don’t do this.
Typography section - looks ok. It doesn’t give enough examples.
After this I’m not sure what you’re doing
Text Masking - you don’t need to include a description defining what it is. Show more examples
Same with Logo Design - more examples and less text.
When it comes to Events - you’ve shown the poster.
Why just this piece?
For me it’s about the entire event - event posters are a great way for you to ‘upsell’ what the customer needs.
For the poster I’d present Pull Up Banner Stands, key chains, pens, mugs, Lanyards, the Stage Design.
Each event should have it’s own page of the portfolio showing various elements required for that event.
As a designer - if you’re freelance or working for someone else you don’t want to just design the Events poster - you want the entire event. If you’re asked to do a poster - what about:
Merchandise (pens, bookmarks, stickers, magnets, mugs, stress balls, tote bags etc)
Clothing (t-shirts, hoodies, caps, etc.)
I can’t tell what’s going on here - branding for who? What have you done branding wise?
There’s no font selections - no colour breakdowns - there’s no consistency between them.
On the yellow and blue pages you’ve used the same box - are these pages the same branding? It’s not very clear.
Text too small to be read on facebook
Back to the Skills page
You list Illustrator as your weakest.
You list Photoshop as your strongest.
AE and PR as stronger than Illustrator.
I’ve seen none of this work in your portfolio.
Plus these are different skillsets for print/web design.
Your facebook covers could be again be some upselling to include Video and Animation to clients whether for yourself or for your employer.
Upsell upsell upsell.
The more you can offer the client the more they are tied to you for future business. If they get a great Events poster from you - they might go to 5 or 6 other vendors for 5 or 6 other things - you should offer all these options.
Don’t let 5 or 6 other opportunities walk out the door.
And I still don’t get it - the work looks great - but the portfolio design it’s presented in is very weak in design.
It’s out of kilter.
