Course Description: This course aims to prepare students for entry-level employment within the industry by assisting them with the development and presentation of an advertising or a graphic and web design portfolio that reflects the stated exit competencies. Students will demonstrate an advanced skill-set in areas as process, conceptual thinking, design, web design, craftsmanship, and other skills, as projects are refined and assembled into a cohesive, comprehensive body of work. Particular emphasis will be placed on identifying short- and long-term professional employment goals, industry and professional related resources and standards, portfolio development and presentation strategies.
Designers present portfolios of their work to prospective employers and clients to showcase their conceptual, technical and business abilities. Working with the instructor, students compile an entry-level portfolio to prepare for their job search. All graduating students are required to present their final portfolio to employers at the Student Portfolio Show.
