I have some vintage designs from 2000, but not in my portfolio.
When I review portfolios for positions on our Design team, its a proposition of, “Am I willing to buy what you’re selling?” Many times I’m asking myself, “Would I put this work in front of our clients?”
Everyone has a starting point when their work was not that great. However, I want to know what you did last week, last month, or last year. I’m gauging how well you understood the problem at hand, and how you went about solving it. The better you demonstrate that, the more confidence I have in moving to an interview and digging deeper.
I’m hiring for your strengths. Make your portfolio the best reflection of what you will produce for me on Day 1.
