Sophomore Portfolio Review
Event Kit & Website Design
At Portland State, graphic design students go through a sophomore portfolio review to carry on in the program. After going through this ourselves, my partner, Debbie Lee, and I worked together to create a survival guide to understanding and passing this review. I focused on the print side of things while she created the website. We gathered and assembled the information into something easily understandable and added a personal touch with handwritten annotations throughout the piece to give advice and warnings. The print piece is separated into four parts; the required classes to be checked off as completed, the best resources to use for the review according to upperclassmen in the program, a guide that includes all necessary information for the review, and a planner that serves as a workbook, month-to-month calendar, and timeline to stay on track.
