Career Resource Spotlight: The Graphic Designer’s Guide to Portfolio Design

To all designers out there who know that a solid portfolio can make or break your job search, this book is for you! Putting together a solid design portfolio and cohesive promotional package can be an overwhelming task. Questions arise such as: Should I use color on my résumé or should I keep it black & white? How do I choose which pieces to include and which ones to leave out? How many samples should I include? This guide will answer all those questions, covering topics such as:

  • Planning your portfolio
  • The portfolio process start to finish
  • The traditional portfolio (with résumé, cover letter and business card)
  • The digital portfolio (CD, DVD, web site—including all the technical aspects of preparing your pieces for optimal digital appearance)

The book will take you step-by-step through all the traditional job-search preparations…tailored specifically for graphic designers and artists! Snippets of advice from art directors and other successful professionals in the field are included to make this resource invaluable to young designers getting ready to market themselves.
