For all you college seniors out there – Congratulations! You are almost done! With school that is. And at the very beginning of what I hope will be a long, rewarding career. If you’re smart you are armed with a top notch portfolio book, website, resume, and promotional materials. If not, no time like the present – hurry up and make one! If you’re having trouble check out my book (with co-author Larry Volk)!
Here’s a stellar example of a portfolio book and website from graphic designer, Jordan Honnette. He studied at Azusa Pacific University and made his portfolio book in a portfolio class last semester. Jordan told me, “It is all handmade with a cover made of skateboard grip tape and hand sewn binding. All work inside is original. This project showcases my understanding of typography, grid, and color.”
