Project Description

Part 1: Take the fun quiz in the Class Assignment PDF which will help you decide when and if exhibiting at a trade show is right for you.

Part 2: Work through the Portfolio Planning PDF to know exactly what you currently have in your portfolio and to brainstorm new ideas to add to your existing body of work.

Then, once you've filled it out, you can come back and create a project for this class. Include the designs you added to page 7 of the PDF and share with us what your plans are for adding to your portfolio and if you have a current trade show goal in mind.
