“I do both. My digital portfolio is always different than my physical portfolio. It offers me the opportunity to show more work. My digital portfolio is the one that resides on my website, but is also on my iPhone and iPad for those “just in case” situations. But, when I meet a client, I always show my physical portfolio. To me a physical portfolio adds validity to the work I’m showing. Digital is great, but nothing beats showing a “real” portfolio. Granted there are things that can only be (or best viewed) viewed digitally (websites, videos, etc.)… I just come prepared for those.”
Soon after, I was contacted by a writer for Computer Arts Projects, a UK based design magazine. He asked me if I would be interested in giving some expanded information and being featured for an article he was writing on the subject of physical vs. digital portfolios. The exchange of emails began, I gave him some samples of work and I am proud to say… the article lives in the May issue of Computer Arts Projects!
Being produced in the UK, it takes a bit longer to hit state side, so they’ve provided me with a PDF of the article until I can get my hands on the real thing. For your viewing pleasure, you can download the readable PDF here. You know you want to know what I said, come on… admit it.
Needless to say, I’m over-the-top excited about being part of this article and this issue. Thanks Computer Arts Projects! Cheers!
