Is your graphic design portfolio lacking? This is a problem faced by designers of all experience levels, but the good news is that it is actually under your control. You can add great new portfolio projects anytime you want. All it takes is a little initiative and a plan of attack.
In this episode, the gang discusses some great ways of giving your portfolio some extra “oomph,” whether you have clients or not. We also talk about some different ways you can turn existing, less-impressive projects into ones that will make a better impression on prospective clients and employers alike.
While we’re on the subject of portfolios, we answer a portfolio-related listener question, and give up some new tips in this week’s “Do yourself a favor.”
