Online Portfolio Design Resources We Like

(c) Jennifer de GraafLast time, we talked about content that can be added to your portfolio regardless of employment status. While I try to keep my posts specific to Landscape Architecture, comparisons can be made with Architecture, Photography, and Graphic Art among other creative fields. If you think about what these folks are saying and apply that critical thinking path to your own work and your target audience, you'll be in good shape when it comes time to make critical decisions about your portfolio.

I have accumulated an embarrassingly long list of online articles, and below are my current favorites:

Landscape Architecture:
Writing Project Descriptions, Landscape Architecture Dept. University of Illinois
Preparing Portfolios for Landscape Architects, Landscape Architecture Dept. University of Illinois

Architecture:
Is It Time To Rethink Your Resume? From Modative
What Hiring Managers Want to See from a recruiter for Architecture, Interiors, Planning and Engineering

Graphic Art:
Design Madison blog post: Handy Pocket Guide to Self Promotion
10 Portfolio Commandments from HOW Magazine (explore their website, it is chock full of fun related stuff!)
7 Tips for Creating a Print-Based Design Portfolio
7 Ingenious Resumes

Photography:
Four blog posts! Portfolio review comments from Editors, Entertainment Industry, and Advertising Execs. Here's one about portfolio reviews .
Video: Ask an Art Buyer (self promotion review)
How to Get Noticed by the British Journal of Photography
Portfolio Review with Claudia Monaco (another art rep)
Wanderlust: I love what this photographer says about his portfolio re-design

Other Stuff:
Writing for the Web
Content Portfolio (seems to have been abandoned in 2009, but is still interesting)
Idea Book: listing of interesting articles and fun things.
Artist Portfolio Guidelines

Please feel free to list any resources on portfolio design that you have found as well, I am sure we’re all looking for more things to bookmark.

Next time, I will be posting my top ten design considerations!
