There’s nothing more important to your career than presenting your best work in an attractive, professional and accessible way.
You may have a personal portfolio website for a number of reasons. If you’re a freelancer, then you’d need one to showcase your work and allow people to contact you. If you’re a student (or unemployed), then you’d need one to show prospective employers how good you are and what you can do, so that they might hire you. If you’re part of a studio, then you might use one to blog about your design life, show people what you’re doing and build your online presence.
But developing a compelling portfolio that will attract the type of work you are seeking takes time. What should I put in my portfolio? Is a fancy presentation important? How many pieces should I include? Do I show one style? Do I show several styles?
This three-day live online workshop will answer all of those questions and more. You will learn how to develop a portfolio that will make your work stand out from other designers, and attract the type of clients you want to work with.
This workshop will cover:
– Identifying your ideal client and how to reach them
– Creating a portfolio that attracts your dream clients
– Organizing your work into a compelling portfolio
– Marketing your portfolio to find new clients
