About this course:

Getting work means getting noticed. You are your own portfolio, and your work shows up in different places, just like you do. The contemporary portfolio is no longer one static experience. Today’s designers secure jobs through social media conversations, self-initiated work, and an ever-lengthening chain of past clients. In this course, we’ll start by looking at a traditional website portfolio. We’ll then compare it to contemporary iterations including those found on social media, as well as a few of today’s emergent platforms. We’ll explore how working within a stylistic or technological niche focuses the would-be designer’s opportunities, potentially leading them to work in the cutting edge fields of Expanded Reality, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality. We’ll also explore practical applications of these concepts by looking at some of today’s most intriguing and popular platforms, including: Gather, Mandy, UpWork, and more. Join in to discover examples of work that gets noticed and learn why and how its creator(s) achieved that goal. You don’t have to wait—just create, share, and with the strategic tips we’ll explore, let the connections unfold.
