Whether a portfolio belongs to a design veteran or a student, we evaluate it on many of these same basic principals. How does yours rate?
You only get one chance at a first impression. How do you stand out? How well does your portfolio introduce yourself?
Does your work demonstrate a coherent thought process and an ability to communicate effectively?
We look for basic elements of design—such as composition and typography—and how they are applied to create unique and visually-compelling solutions.
Software knowledge and ability is an important part of design—your skills become evident in how well you lay out a page, edit an image, or typeset copy.
Sometimes what you show is more important than how you show it. Portfolio selections should represent your ability and desire, as well as be appropriate for the type of work you seek.
It’s true. Typos, errors and overlooked details can quickly send your portfolio into the reject pile. Attention to detail is not only critical to the industry—it’s critical to getting hired.
If you’ve captured some’s attention long enough for them to look at your entire portfolio, you’ve won half the battle. The lasting impression your portfolio creates is shaped by the combination of all the criteria above.
