About This Class

36a921f9

Understanding how to build your portfolio and present your work as a creative freelancer or designer is important in gaining those larger clients and obtaining work that YOU want to do. I have had the opportunity to hire graphic designers, copywriters, web designers, and social media mangers for my clients.   

In this short class, we will go over the basics of portfolio building, things to consider when presenting your work. When I sort through hundreds of amazing portfolios, many way better than my own, I have learned what works and what does not. We will then put one together using Canva, a simple portfolio that includes a cover page and three projects. We will then explore an online option that will help you get in front of potential clients.

So let's start building!
