Starting off, let me firstly introduce you to my collective folder of Portfolio ideas that I had pulled together: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/707smgs/portfolios/
Bearing in mind, that I wanted to have something that would keep my illustrations creative, but presentable. I tried to find and look at the various ways of how a portfolio, or someones work could be banded together and maintain a theme or brand for that practitioner.
When it comes to portfolios or keeping a specific set of work together, I found that I didn’t want there to be a mass of work, but only a select few of the best or ideas that could possibly be extended in to new ones.
However, when considering the presentation. I tried to look for portfolio ideas that withheld a simple, yet professional look to band everything together.
Previously, this had been looked at and discussed with in CIP and even now, I would still like to take the approach of having the work compiled n to a folder or a box that can allow someone to easily pull out the work and arrange it to the way they want to.
With the above, it comes across as creative, but personal and I like that touch in particular. I like the overall little details that have been made to this in particular, and it’s starting to make me consider how i could present myself professionally through the box or however way I may choose to bind my work together for an interview.
More of a box approach, I like the way that everything has been allowed for the viewer to pull out and put back; it also comes across as if the work is a packaged piece. Everything slots in nicely, and it comes across that the designer had thought about this very well with how it’s been presented.
Over all, I prefer this portfolio as it tells me exactly what kind of style or how the designer approaches their work; from the layout to the type choices. Every aspect of this portfolio has been well considered, the type and boldness helps tie everything together.
