Poof, now you have an ideal portfolio.

Make it like Facebook, only different!

There are some pretty extensive threads about it on the forum already. Do a search for it, and im sure youll get a lot of great tips.

I don’t know, I disagree with them and say do it completely opposite in a totally awesome creative way using all the same stuff.

In all serious it is an impossible question to answer. I suppose the ideal portfolio is the one that assits you in getting the position you are targeting. So the answer depends on what the position is? At what company? Who is viewing it, HR, design management, design staff, all 3?

Most posters in this forum do like to comment on portfolios. I suggest putting something together, letting us know what your intentions are (i.e. getting into school, getting the perfect job and what that is, etc.) and getting some feedback on your work, and your format. That’s generally the best way to get what you’re looking for on this site.

Take this man’s advice and apply it towards your portfolio for the win.
