portfolio review

Title page sets up the project- beauty shot + title

Use some graphic elements

More color

More process

Look at magazines for layout inspiration

Contextual shots are always hot!

Don’t be afraid to not be square?

Lots of white space

3 sentences with smaller font max

Larger sketches

Aim for QUICK understanding.

Use a better font

Send sample set up next meet

10-15 minutes to talk through portfolio- first 30 seconds are key

Don’t make it a big file— should be a quick download

Problem solving=$$$

Size matters not. Don’t have dense pages. Err on the side of white space- clean, simple, easy to read/understand

Sketch pages- not necessary to be grid, mosaic it together! Show different angles/sizes.

Lots of contrasting color with white space

One line + one image

Only put Best of the Best. You shouldn’t put something in just to put it in. leave the dude wanting to see more (in a good way)

Concept sketches are also hot
