Project 9 Portfolio

  • Portfolio (
  • Project Corrections / Time spent: I spent a half hour revising my flier and an hour and a half revising my brochure. On the flier, I moved the date, time, and place down to align with the bottom of the Vouant logo for better alignment. I also changed the body copy because InDesign said my original body copy was missing. I made the logo a little bigger, so people could read it more easily. Lastly, I moved the body copy more to the left so that the right margin would be more even with the top and bottom margins.
  • For my brochure, I clipped out the backpacker in the big inside image and put it on the part of the flier that overlaps that big image. So when you open it, it lines up. I thought this would add more visual interest. I took one of the photos off the back because I didn’t like the quality of it. I added paragraph styling to my body copy to make it less daunting to read.
  • Message: The purpose or message of this portfolio is to market my design and photography skills to clients and employers. 
  • Audience: Clients and employers
  • Top Thing Learned: A portfolio should not only be a “container” for your work, but it should be a piece of your work itself. It should, in and of itself, market you to employers and clients.
  • Future application of Visual Media: I chose Visual Communication as my cluster so that I could have something I could do freelance with from home. Additionally, it can just come in handy for so many things. I could use it for work, church, even things like yard sale advertisements and birthday invitations. If I do ever work out of the home, my knowledge in the Adobe programs and design principles might put me ahead of the competition.
