Today's students of architecture, interior design and landscape design need to master the art of marketing themselves via both traditional handheld and digital portfolios. Design Portfoliosenables students to create portfolios that serve as both evolving collections of creative solutions to design problems and evidence of their abilities to visually relay messages. Addressing issues of creation, maintenance and presentation, the book guides students through every step of the interview and presentation process - from making first contact to composing a thank you letter and securing a job.
