A few members of our team spent this past Sunday at the Kenmore Live Studio in downtown Chicago helping with the Student & Professional Portfolio Review hosted by IDSA. At Beyond Design, we understand the value of a great portfolio and are always willing to provide our recommendations to students on how they can improve their design portfolio.
For an industrial designer, a design portfolio is an essential aspect in getting a job. The main purpose of any portfolio is to visually and effectively communicate your design work. It is important to show the entire process from beginning to end, including the research and strategy behind each project. The key is to tell a story with each piece you present.
We encourage students to attend events such as this—it’s a great way to meet professionals and get a comprehensive review of your portfolio and discover ways to make it better!
