So I’ve finally finished my first sophomore portfolio, and I got my first co-op at a consultancy in New Jersey! During my co-0p, I will be updating it with projects from this current quarter, so i would like some feedback on what doesn’t work too well so i can keep it in mind when I rework my portfolio. I’m looking for what projects to possibly remove, what is unclear in my projects that I should try and elaborate on, what I should change graphically, and any other feedback you have.
Here is my official link:
Thank you for your time and feedback!!
This summer, I began the process of creating a portfolio layout for next year when I start to apply for internships. I have finally picked a color scheme and design “theme” (more like a trend… go pinstripes!) to base my portfolio on, and am kind of liking the way it is turning out. Right now, I have only included a few foundations projects as more of a “filler” (I don’t think these are particularly interesting enough to warrant being in my final book, especially when I finally take ID studios next year), and would like some feedback on a few things (don’t worry, you don’t have to answer all the following questions… I guess these are more things I considered while putting this together- any and all feedback is appreciated, especially as this is still in the primary stages of development):
anyways, here it is:
(also, I am aware that for the third page, there are two white boxes running though the images… I have no idea why they are there, but have fixed them… It would just take forever to re-upload)
Of the three layouts (for the foundations pages), which one appeals most? Do none of them really work? Would you want to see more projects on those pages? Less? Process for the monolith? Is there anything I should try instead [layout wise]?
Cover Page- does this format work? Is all the information clear? Is there too much/too little on the front? Is there anything you want to see instead/ in addition to what’s there?
design philosophy/CV spread- I am aware how amateur/poorly written the philosophy page is… right now it’s probably more of a filler page than anything, but is it ok to dedicate a page to something like that? or would you rather see something else (like more of an introduction/about me or a photo of me (i’ve herd that’s a big no-no)? CV-wise, is all the information clear? (this page gave me the most trouble) Is there anything I can do to just make it… better? Maybe spread it over 2 pages (that would probably after I’ve had a bit more experience though…)?
Thank you so much for your time, and if there are any considerations I should be making now, please suggest them! I guess the main idea for this is that I’m making kind of a style guide for my “real” portfolio, so I don’t have to spend as much time freaking out over it, and more time on the actual projects.
I truly appreciate your time and feedback- all tips, advice, and critiques (even if you think I should start over from the ground up!) would be greatly appreciated!
