A successful Portfolio Workshop at the Service Design Club today! Thank you to Lindsay Vetell and Lauren Peters for presenting their work and offering great advice!
-Showcase your PROCESS. Companies respond to HOW we do our work. This is important to emphasis as a Service Designer.
-Tell a STORY. Structure your projects in a way that makes sense to the person that will be looking at your work. Find someone outside of the department to test this out on.
-Be CONCISE and CLEAR. Both in describing your work and your self, keep it simple but relevant.
-Be ACTIVE. Start capturing your process, and use tumblr, Linkedin, slideshare, etc as supportive platforms to show how you work. The portfolio can be polished, but give people a way to see all parts of the process.
-Let it GROW. Start small and continue to refine and add as you see fit. Allow your portfolio to adapt and change as you acquire new skills and work on new projects.
