About Your Work
Your Portfolio/Website Menu will lead to 3-or-so Category Pages.
For an Animator it might be:
- Furniture Design
- Character Design
For a Graphic Designer it might be:
For a Performance Artist it might be:
- Performance Art
- Site Specific Pieces
- Gallery Work
and so on.
Each of these Category Pages should have a paragraph at the top providing context for what we will see on this page.
If it’s Animation Storyboards talk about how you approach creating storyboards. Describe your process and ideas. Give your viewer help in understanding you and how you work.
A Graphic Designer might describe the research process they use to develop communication pieces that connect to their client’s audience.
For a Performance Artist, you might describe how you develop your pieces and how you approach working with a new site-specific space.
On each of your Category Pages will be a series of works. No image should float alone. You should always have at least a brief caption explaining what your visitor is looking at and why you made the choices you made. What were you trying to communicate to who?
Etherpad & Padlet
Add your text for Category Pages & Work Descriptions to your Etherpad. Soon you’ll be using this text on your portfolio website! 😀
You can also share some of your text with your classmates on Padlet. The more we interact with classmates as they go through similar processes, the better we’ll all do. A rising tide lifts all boats – it’s true!!!
