New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Hi, everybody. I just discovered Typophile today and I'm already totally addicted. I'm a third year graphic design student in a five year program where we "co-op" (like a paid internship) and attend class in alternating quarters. Right now I'm in the middle of my second co-op quarter at the only job I've had. When I interviewed there, I used a large black case portfolio with acetate pages to showcase my work. This was required by our teachers, and all the work was printed full size/originals.
Here's my question: I'm going to be interviewing again in a couple months and it's time to start putting together my new portfolio. I have too much to put into a large portfolio case, and I would prefer to design the layout for my portfolio and bind it into a book. Do you have any advice for a professional-looking student portfolio? What would impress you when looking at another designer's portfolio? What are some standards for your own? Anything anyone can offer would be appreciated. (I think my supervisor might have said 10x15 was a good size but I can't remember! Is this a standard size?)
