Designing my Portfolio.

Following my research into design portfolios, I firstly wanted to set mine out in a basic and easy layout so that I would be able to showcase all my work without too much distraction.

I started by placing all my images on plain white landscape a3 pages to see how it would all fit, when it came to showcasing the animations I had created I used screenshots of it to represent this.

I wanted the images to be quite big and fill the page as I wanted the images to speak for themselves and be noticeable, avoiding a lot of negative space that may occur. Because of this when thinking about including text I played with the idea of having separate slides introducing each topic that was to follow the next couple pages. I had seen this on a portfolio online and felt this technique allowed it to follow well and allow each work to be explained to the fullest.

I found it really difficult to find a way in which I could make the portfolio more creative once I had placed all my images on the slides, I felt trapped between making it too over crowed and making it too plain and  boring and therefore  struggled with what direction, I wanted to go in.  I played with introducing minimal boxes of colour in which the text could be placed to add something different to the plain white background, however decided to wait to show Theo in my group tutorial before I began to play with it anymore as I was very keen to get his feedback and advice on how I can now progress further.
