Show only work which reflects your strength—both creative and technical. Resolve all issues of technology and ease of presentation before coming to the interview. Fumbling with the presentation of your work can easily distract you from focusing on answering questions during the interview. Do not include framed pieces in your portfolio—photograph the work. Do not bring 3D design work to the interview—photograph the work from several different points of view if it is to be included in your portfolio. Do not bring oversized work to the interview—photograph the work. Do not include work older than 2 or 3 years—current work best demonstrates your creative and skill level. Present work flat rather than rolled, mounted or matted. Arrange the work in your portfolio to demonstrate development. Select work that demonstrates your ability to handle a wide range of techniques, media, materials and subject matter with skill.
