What is a portfolio?
- A collection of your work that you feel best shows your skills and aesthetic.
- A showcase of what you have to offer.

What should a portfolio include?
- Strong examples of your work.
- Work that you feel best represents you as a designer.
- If its tailored to a particular company - work that you feel best represents what you think they’ll want to see.
- A range of pieces - not a folder full of the same thing.
- Show your ability to design - a badly design portfolio would give off the impression of a bad designer, or a ‘I can’t be bothered’ designer.
