Why Do I Need a Graphic Design Portfolio? A portfolio is a showcase of the talent and creativity that you have to offer to who ever is looking at it. It needs to show that you are creative, but also reflect your attention to detail. It is the foot in the door, or a the foot booting you out. It is so important that you create a strong representation of your work. There is more than one way of presenting your work in this industry. But we'll look at these ways a bit later on. How Much Work Do I Show? The general tendency for a student is to show as much work as possible. Just as long as it looks pretty good, right? They think that these designs are miles ahead of what they could do before they were in the program, so they include it. This is a huge mistake. I've seen many pfs watered down and ruined because they chose quantity over quality. Rather choose 12 strong designs over 12 strong and 12 so so designs. The employer will remember the 12 average designs the most. Those will stick in their minds and your chances go down the tubes. You might as well walk out. (Please don't though. LOL) What Kind of Graphic Design Portfolio should I Create? There are 3 main kinds of graphic design portfolios that students generally create. One that is printed, one that is online, and one that is on a DVD or CD. But which one is the right one to create? How do I know I'm choosing the right one? The best way to approach this dilemma is to create all 3. Yup. 3 of them. You see, some employers want to touch and feel and interact with printed media, some want to have a DVD that they can plop into their computer and view, and some don't want to be bothered with a stack of portfolios, so they prefer a website where they are one click away.
