Hey Adam,


I'll help out, I'm in the same situation at the moment. Also, how did you enjoy Brighton? I studied there too but the other end of the A27. I think our courses should work together being in such close proximity but Brighton Uni are lazy bastards and would never implement it.


Immediately I notice that the pages are very cluttered. I think the narrative of each project is clear, but compressed. If it is meant as a teaser portfolio I think it might be good to spend more time on a really clean, effective presentation of the core data rather than try to cover everything for each project.


Also if you would like people to print it you might want to consider using less solid blocks of colour as these are pricey to print and will also saturate the paper on standard office printers (unless they have a laser printer.) which will detract from the quality of your work.


The best advice I've been given is to show a clear and cohesive process, and search hundreds of other people's portfolios, which are all so readily available online, to see what works and get a feel for what other recent graduates are capable of. You have to beat them and there are some amazing projects along with top notch presentation work floating around from our fellow grads.


Hope this helps
