How good is your folio?
We have a lot folio’s come through the studio and we find that we only end up looking through a handful. To help with with your folio here’s a basic list of don’ts that will make us start to love you. There’s also a few extra tips over here.
If your applying for a digital design job don’t send me a pdf. You work in the digital space then you should have a website, plus they overfill my inbox so it will be the first thing I delete when I need the space.
2. Password Protected Sites
Plain and simple I don’t have time for this, I want to be able click on a link and see your awesome work. Granted there might be some pieces which can’t be made public yet but you still want to show off then put them on a page thats not accessible from your folio site.
3. Pixel Perfection
When presenting your work and showcasing multiple screens from the one project in a carousel, make sure the pages line up! If logos, global navigation etc are shifting from screen to screen then how can we trust you to deliver pixel perfection to a client.
It’s all pretty basic stuff and I will take the time to get hyped up on your work, just triple check the shit out of your folio and make sure it’s as tight as it can be.
