Blog Archive » 7 Tips For Creating a Print-Based Design Portfolio This is a bold statement, but building a portfolio is quite tricky because everyone seems to have a differing opinion on how it should be done. Building a portfolio is about showcasing your work and therefore, it should be an expression of your personality and design style. Most online articles tend to offer advice on just web-based portfolios. Though PDF and web-based portfolios are becoming more acceptable, I still believe that nothing takes the place of a well-executed print portfolio that a potential client or employer can physically hold and flip through during a meeting. What steps can you take to make your print portfolio your absolute best? Get as much professional work in your portfolio as soon as possible. I’ve now been out of school for about a year and in that time, I have replaced nearly every class-initiated project with client work. Invest in a format that you’re passionate about.

Dorsumi – D-news – Dorsuminews New Logo and Packaging for Brand Bier by VBAT Established in 1340 in Limburg, the southernmost of the 12 provinces of the Netherlands, Brand Bier is the oldest Dutch brewery. Its main product is a pilsner and it also produces seven other — Heavy Blonde, Double Bock, Lentebock, Up, Imperator, Sylvester, and Weizen. This past July, Brand introduced a new line of packaging designed by Amsterdam-based VBAT. There is a press release here but doesn’t really say much. The main element of the logo — the stunning and bad-ass blackletter — has been kept the same in the evolution but everything else has been well refined. Most refreshingly, the logo has been taken out of its constricting oval and given room to breathe. The previous look wasn’t offensive in any kind of way but it wasn’t memorable either. Each beer kind now has its own logo derived from the main logo, with a more consistent (and heavily ornamental) typographic approach that give the 6-packs a commanding shelf presence. Thanks to Marc Nijborg for the tip.
