Online Portfolio
DUE DATE: Dec 10th

DESCRIPTION:

For your final project, you will create an online portfolio that includes all the assignments you have done for this class, as well as any other relevant work. You will apply your understanding of design and composition, information layout, and web culture. If you are a DTC major, this portfolio is required for your major and will be added to as you go through the program. Please refer to the DTC Portfolio guidelines here. If you are not a DTC major, think of this website as a professional portfolio that you can use as you advance in your professional career.

We will use cargo collective to make our portfolios this semester. We have been given a promo code that will grant everyone a free one year subscription. If you want to use a different website builder though, you are welcome to as long as you check with me about it.



Project Requirements:  

Your portfolio must include all major assignments made during the semester. You are also welcome to include past work or work from other DTC classes.

The portfolio must also include a Resume or CV, your contact info, a bio, and a link to your design blog.

Your portfolio is clean, professional, and considered. Please refer to the principles of design and composition and the examples given. However, how you create your portfolio is ultimately up to you.

Considerations of Color, Design, Typography, etc.
