About this workshop

Whether you are a designer, a developer, a marketer, a student or anything in between - in today's creative job market every differentiator will count towards getting the job. Gone are the days of being able to talk over your future employer's head, just showing the latest deliverable you are working on, even worse showing nothing at all. Welcome instead to a world where your work is being measured not by what you say it was, but by what it really was.

In this workshop the reasons for creating a portfolio will be reviewed, but the focus will be on how to think through and execute the creation of a great portfolio.

Takeaways

  • How to build a framework and storyline
  • How to decide on a format and distribution
  • How to avoid being exhaustive while showing depth
  • How to get around "what you are allowed to show"

Prereqs & Preparation

We won't be building portfolios in class, since time is limited. So you'll only need pen and paper. I will ask that no laptops, iPads or phones are used in session.
