Final Portfolio

Process: I was asked to create a slidedeck portfolio of my visual communication projects for potential employers.  I placed my creations in Microsoft Powerpoint to design my portfolio and then I saved the document as a .pdf to upload to slideshare.com.  That is an easy and great way to showcase my work! I also added a beginning and ending slide to introduce and conclude my portfolio. I wanted my beginning slide to show action and movement, but also be a creative image to represent my theme of “fitness and design.”  I found that fun orange splash image online and flipped and edited it to fit my slide page.  I also added repeating color bars and titles to each slide to introduce each project and have more design and consistency throughout my portfolio.  I wanted to match my bottom design bars to colors within my images to pull it all together.

Critique: I received critiques from my instructor, Julie Peterson, and classmates, Cristy Crawford and Susan Ruske on Facebook and in a class web meeting on July 15th.  I was very focused on aligning each individual slide, but did not think about aligning all the slides together in the bottom design bar.  That was great feedback to do that and to make my background colors flow better from slide to slide.  I went through each slide and realigned all the bottom design bars and typography and also rearranged my slides to have better flow in background color.  Great feedback!  I’m happy with my final portfolio project and excited to share it.  🙂

  1. Definitely not boring! I’ve clicked through it several times, forward and backward and the ONLY thing I can think to say is to potentially add a subtle background color on those slides that are white, but it may be fine as is. I think that one comes down to personal preference. Amazing job!!
