  • Posted to Portfolio Decks: Yay or Nay?, Apr 01, 2019

    I always send along my portfolio website with my resume. The website contains longer form case studies in the style of blog posts, but also some projects that are lighter on content.

    When I am asked to come in for a presentation, I present my portfolio as a deck where the stories may be tweaked a bit to suit the format.

    I always thought though that this was the proper way to present work because case studies on websites are often just too wordy for a good presentation. My assumption was that this is how most designers did it, but I could be wrong.

    I'm confused though. How would you present your case study in a form factor other than a deck?

    "Hate" is a strong word. Why so negative? A product is a good that is produced - it's not limited to physical/tangible objects. In that way the term "Product Design" can refer to industrial design or an app, or possibly even service design.

    I agree with Will H. on the chaotic look of it. The typography and the grid style is preventing it from being easily scannable. The headers in italic aren't very easy to read and the subheaders look extremely small and illegible against them.

    This seems to be an opposing design philosophy to the NYT which is all about grids and legibility. Frankly, I think NYT has a much better approach to designing news appropriately.

    I wanna throw Wunderlist into the ring as a really well-done, simple app. Soundcloud is also great.
