What you can learn.

  • How to tell your story with impact to potential collaborators, investors, employers, and others
  • Demonstrate what you can do, how you think, and where you want to make an impact with your design portfolio
  • How to strategically create a visual display of your skills, work, and experiences
  • With a future path in mind, pull together the experiences you have had in the Design Communication Arts program

About this course:

To make real impact in the world you need to show what you can do, how you think, and where you want to make design impact. As a designer, in the near future you will find yourself telling your story to potential collaborators, funders, employers, and others. You can no longer rely on a resume or a transcript to show a comprehensive range of your skills and experiences. As more work and workplaces become project-based, these formats fall short of revealing the potential you have. This class helps you create a portfolio—one that communicates your value and your values to prospective collaborators or employers. This course is most useful to students who have a future path in mind and is a way to reflect on the experiences you have had in the DCA program.
Prerequisites
All core design courses, or departmental approval.
