Kimball and Portfolios
Kimball made some great points about what makes for a good portfolio. The first is that a portfolio is used to show your best work. To do this, you need to revise and polish your work to prove it is the best you can do. The thing that stuck out to me the most was when he suggested that portfolios should follow a certain pattern. Being a portfolio is comprised of your best work, you want a good reflection of yourself in this portfolio. The design and structure of it should go along with the image of yourself you are trying to portray in your work. Also, it should follow a pattern of some kind. This would be work you had to fix the most, or what you had most fun doing, what you learned the most, etc. It was a very helpful article for this final portfolio.
