In order to design a portfolio it is essential to follow the fundamental principles of design. To create a well structured layout it is recommended that you use a grid. Use of the grid establishes consistency within a portfolio books design. Therefore I have created the following Portfolio book design worksheet.
Using the Portfolio Book Design Worksheet:
Fill out the Portfolio Worksheet and complete the thumbnails for a basic layout of the aspect ratio you have chosen for your book design: square, tall, wide
1.Print and Sketch out layouts in the worksheet.
2.Refine your layouts as wireframes. Label each piece and identify its contents. Include the name and type of portfolio work that is contained in each area. Include all copy that you intend to use: project name, problem, solution, technologies used. Download the Illustrator files below and arrange as multiple pages if desired. THIS WILL BE THE BLUEPRINT FOR YOUR PRINT PORTFOLIO.
