  1. Very good advice! Have you tried printing them as well? I just graduated and I'm looking for entry level graphic design job. Do companies typically prefer printed portfolios or is everyone okay with digital now? I feel like I should have both but i don't want to overwhelm them. Thanks!

  2. I enjoyed the video. It was simple and to the point, while not being flashy. Thank you for sharing your experience with the design community. I never thought or knew about product mock-ups. I design logos and this will help a lot. Thanks again!

  3. Im a Graphic Design student and im making my first portfolio. I was curious in what ways i could display it. My html en css in bad so a website wont work. Does a pdf file work?

  4. Learned a good amount with this video so thanks! I had a question though, do you have any suggestions for people new to this field that are trying to build up a portfolio? Having no clients and such so basically having to create solely freelance.

  5. Helpful stuff!  Just curious about the .psd templates: Do the "flat" pages that you upload to the various sections automatically render into the page curve and perspective as seen in the final product? If so, that must have been a headache to create. Thanks–nice video!
