    Hello Everyone, Feedback On My Portfolio, Please.

    Oh, wow. I hadn't noticed anyone replied! Thanks to you both for the feedback. It brought a smile to my face. I had thought it might be "too much" process, but I guess it's better to show it than not. The only thing I do worry is that my in-person portfolio might be a bit much, as it is 60 pages for 4 projects. Is that too much, Waikit? During an interview does it matter more if the work is of quality, versus how many pages are there? 60 pages of fluff would probably bore an interviewer to death.
  3. Hi guys I was wondering if any of you would give me feedback on my student work. I am currently seeking an internship or entry level work in NYC and was hoping my work was up to standards. I show a lot of process, which some on another forum have mentioned was a bit much, but is it really? I always thought employers wanted to see our thinking process. Or do I have too much to see on a website? Should I take out the process and reserve that for in-person interviews? And if anyone can relate their own experience, that would be great (as to what employers like to see in online portfolios). Id appreciate any feedback possible. Thanks in advance. Chris (link deleted).
  4. (SINCE I CAN'T DELETE THIS POST, I MUST ADD THAT THESE DVDS HAVE BEEN SOLD ) Hi Everyone, I just wanted to see if anyone would be interested in purchasing from me some DVDs that I have accumulated over the last 3 years as an Industrial Design student that have helped me a lot but I no longer need, as I have improved ten-fold! They are in great condition because I am super-obsessed about caring for my personal items, esp. DVD's. They are not scratched and they are super awesome for newbie or intermediate students in Industrial Design, who want to improve their rendering and sketching skills. Both are imports when I got them and there is even one that is a 10 DVD box-set collection, that is imported from Australia, created by the University of South Australia's ID department and are hard to find online anymore (trust me, I tried but it seems these are not produced anymore). Both items were super helpful in learning about drawing perspective, ellipses, marker rendering, material expression, etc. I have attached the links below of the auctions I have started on Ebay if anyone is interested in viewing them. Let me know if you have any questions! Thank you.

    Survey; School Project, Need Assistance.

    Anyone? I have only gotten 4 replies to my survey and 52 views ? I promise, it's a very short survey!
  6. Hello fellow designers/ID students, I am conducting a survey for my Senior project for school and am in dire need of assistance. This survey is set up on Surveymonkey.com and it should only take about 5 minutes to fill out. It will help me gain insight and solidify my design direction for my project. I am delving into the realm of teeth; oral care to be specific. I am looking into user's oral care habits in order to design a product, whether physical or virtual/digital, that would help motivate better oral health, in particular the act of flossing. In a nutshell, I want to learn why/why not/how/where people floss; consistency, routines, etc. It's a 10 question, multiple choice survey. It would help me a great deal. I wish I could compensate you for your time, but I cannot, so anything you can do to help a frazzled, stressed out ID student would be greatly appreciated. Thank you again and have a pleasant Sunday. The link to the survey is attached below. By the way, I need to turn in my findings by next Wed. the 12th, so please help. Regards, Chris http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DQFNCQV

    Chair Sketch

    ummm, there is no "software" that can teach you about shadows, adding colour.... you can render either in Photoshop or Sketchbook Pro, but if you want to learn HOW TO render than you might need instructional books/videos, such as those sold by Renderdemo.com. I have a few and they have taught me a ton. Or Scott Robertson's Bicycle rendering video sold on his website. For books on traditional rendering, using marker, pencil and pastel, I recommend Dick Powell's books. You can find them used on Amazon or Ebay. YOu might have to start learning the basics first before you delve into digital rendering if you are asking about how the principles of shading, shadows, color, form change, etc. You need to know those principles before even getting into any software. No software will teach you those basics. Best of luck.
