Project Description

Step One: Review your portfolio and fill out the Portfolio Style Guide PDF provided (link can be found to the right). Then, take a screenshot of your 10 favorite pieces from your portfolio.

Post the screenshot and share with us a few words from the word list you created to describe your work.

Step Two: Research five new companies and search for contact info utilizing the tips I gave you in class. This step may take you several weeks, so don’t think you have to finish it all in one go. Please Note: You do NOT need to provide a list of companies or contacts you found.

Enjoy the process and if you have any questions, make sure to leave them on the Community page OR email me directly.
