About This Class

Welcome to the Graphic Design Portfolio Builder course!

This course is for anyone looking to add work to their graphic design portfolio, and is especially geared towards beginner and intermediate designers.

In this course you will find:

  • 20+ Project Prompts and ideas for building a stunning graphic design portfolio

  • Insights from an industry pro and from a hiring manager

  • Resume creation tips

  • Ideas for setting up both digital and hard-copy portfolios

I move quickly through the content, since many students enjoy a quick learning pace. Prefer a more laid-back pace? Many students find that re-watching lectures or pausing the lectures during key learning points is a helpful way to digest the information.

What to Expect:

This course provides everything from project prompt assignments, to an inside look at what hiring managers look for in your resume and portfolio.

You will have the chance to design things like:

  • logos

  • icon sets

  • T-shirts

  • evites

  • social media graphics

  • and so much more!

I designed this course so that everyone could move through the content at their own pace. Feel free to skip around to what interests you most, or go through the course as it is laid out - the choice is yours!
