Design Portfolios: Moving from Traditional to Digital
Students in the disciplines of architecture, interior design, and landscape design have always created traditional portfolios, which include all their projects in the form of physical objects that can be held and evaluated during an interview. With advances in technology, a digital version of the portfolio is becoming increasingly popular-but how does a student create one? And more important, how is it best utilized during an interview? Design Portfolios addresses these questions, moving beyond the simple checklist of skills and accomplishments that a portfolio should showcase. Quotations from practicing designers reinforce the author's guidelines for creating, maintaining, and presenting both traditional and digital portfolios. This book teaches students how to use their portfolios as a marketing tool for the most important thing they will ever sell-themselves!Features- Quotes from approximately 100 practicing architects, interior designers, and landscape architects from across the United States.- Presents a 4-step process of gathering and organizing the contents of a portfolio for the best effect.- Utilizes work of undergraduate and graduate design students to model successful portfolios.- Shows how to customize a portfolio for specific customers.- Offers tips for the job hunt, preparation of a powerful résumé, and interview strategies.- Instructor's Guide provides suggestions for planning the course and using the text in the classroom
