These are the two portfolios I made for my Senior Studio course. One for taking around to clients, the other for mailing. The photos aren't great, but whatever.
The big portfolio is actually a record box I recovered.
It's well put together and I love the graphic quality of it. Btw..I was wondering if you had any suggestions on finding inspiration for your mailing portfolio?
I have a similar project coming up soon where I need to design an inexpensive portfolio I can reproduce quickly and mail to potential employers.. I just can't seem to find anything that sparks my imagination for packaging. Any tips?
In the course where I made this portfolio, our teacher recommended finding cheap objects that you can modify into a portfolio, like a box or book. That's partly why I went with a record box. But there are a lot of possibilities.
I dig the idea that you actually made two different portfolio boxes for different purposes. Apparently you put your works in a design context in putting them on framed and branded cardboard background, though?
