Portfolio and Presentation Tips

16Nov06

A few tips on presentations and portfolios. Make sure your presentation files accurately represent your concept. Don’t be forced to say, “Well it won’t really look like that.” Use colors and materials how you intend the final product to look. Make sure the design presentation is neatly put together. The art of a good presentation can make or break all the hard work up to now.

A well-organised presentation will start off with a very brief overview and will make the most important points early, so that if you do run out of time, what you don’t get to say will be less important. Be careful not to get bogged down in detail, and select carefully the things you do want to talk about in depth. If you do run out of time, wrap up whatever current point you are talking about, and move to a few closing words that remind the panel why your design is a winner.

Will add to this list over the next couple of days.
