Our way of giving back.

Getting into the design business isn’t always easy. That’s why we’re open about what we look for in a winning portfolio, and why we offer paid internships to recent design graduates. If you’re feeling a little brave, you can even send us your portfolio.

 

What we look for

Whether a portfolio belongs to a design veteran or a student, we evaluate it on many of these same basic principals. How does yours rate?


First Impression

You only get one chance at a first impression. How do you stand out? How well does your portfolio introduce yourself?

Conceptual Aptitude

Does your work demonstrate a coherent thought process and an ability to communicate effectively?

Design Skills

We look for basic elements of design—such as composition and typography—and how they are applied to create unique and visually-compelling solutions.

Technical Ability

Software knowledge and ability is an important part of design—your skills become evident in how well you lay out a page, edit an image, or typeset copy.

Content Selection

Sometimes what you show is more important than how you show it. Portfolio selections should represent your ability and desire, as well as be appropriate for the type of work you seek.

Attention to Detail

It’s true. Typos, errors and overlooked details can quickly send your portfolio into the reject pile. Attention to detail is not only critical to the industry—it’s critical to getting hired.

Overall Presentation

If you’ve captured some’s attention long enough for them to look at your entire portfolio, you’ve won half the battle. The lasting impression your portfolio creates is shaped by the combination of all the criteria above.
