If you didn’t catch the title name do not worry, it’s a poorly constructed joke but forgive
me sleep is like a rare enjoyment for me this past couple of weeks.
I decided to create a portfolio of all of my advertising, branding and design work so far. A portfolio, besides an online one, is a physical print and bound book of a designer’s or advertiser’s work and people create that so that you can land those sought after, soul selling, internships in New York City.
The process was tough as hell and I am currently hating on every Adobe product out there but I’m sure I’ll love them again.
A portfolio of all of your work is like pouring your soul out in a book and hope for the best. I have my review from some industry pros tomorrow actually so wish me luck.
The printing and binding itself were easy, cause I outsourced it, but the process of creating it was hard and tedious. But I loved it. It’s sort of a love-hate relationship, kind of like NY.
The end product looks good, I hope. What was hard was the price as it was very expensive, like everything else in NY to print and bound but you do what you have to do.
I think if you are a designer or an advertiser or a creative in general PRINT A PORTFOLIO, it will do you immense good and it is a fun experience to go through.
