I thought I would post my portfolio here to possibly get feedback from some experienced graphic designers. Recently I have been working on making my portfolio more impressive while job searching. Although, I have been having trouble landing interviews (or any feedback at all ;-;), which leads me to believe my portfolio is far from impressive. I’m hoping someone could point me in the right direction to make changes for it and let me know what needs to be improved.
I am a graphic designer and illustrator. At first, I thought by including illustrations in my design portfolio, it would show companies that I am also capable of illustrating for them – I hoped it would become an asset that would give me a leg up. However, now I feel the major problem with my portfolio is that maybe it has too many illustrative aspects and not enough concrete work from experience with an actual company (I have some personal projects on my portfolio). Please let me know what you think and if I’m headed in the right direction!
Feel free to be as harsh as you would like! If you have any questions I will try to answer them in the comments. I’m really thankful for anyone that takes the time to view my work and provide feedback!
