Professional Feedback: Portfolio

I sent my business card, CV, and portfolio in an email to a bunch of graphic design agencies nationwide in order to gain feedback on the quality of my work. Describing the project and the ideas behind each design, I wanted to hear their honest opinion on whether they would see something like this in industry. From the 14 emails to different companies I sent out, I only received 3 responses: http://oysterdesign.co.uk/http://designamite.co.uk/ and
http://110percent.co.uk/

This part focuses on my online portfolio:

  • They all liked the clean style the website had adopted.
  • Try to keep the colour scheme consistent throughout, even tiny details such as text colour.
  • Feedback on the masthead, updating sizes and placement to work better.
  • There were also comments praising the standard of work on the website.
  • Keep updating with new projects, potentially remove older ones as more go on.

This part looks into the feedback received for my CV:

  • They really liked the folded leaflet concept. It was described as a narrative, going through it in stages. Also referring to it as fresh and different, meaning people are more likely to pick it up.
  • I was told the ‘About me’ section wasn’t up-to-scratch, and told it would be wise to change it so it sells myself better.
  • A few blank spaces to fill up. (Except the area where the business card goes, but that was explained to them.)
  • Liked how it worked well with the business card.
  • They all liked the overall design, describing it as very neat and effective, gets all of the relevant information across in a unique style.

Professional Feedback: Business Card

I sent my business card, CV, and portfolio in an email to a bunch of graphic design agencies nationwide in order to gain feedback on the quality of my work.

This part describes the responses I got for the feedback on my business card designs.

  • Overall, the feedback was good. They where all impressed with the design, liking the simplicity and style. They said it definitely catches the attention of the eye with the bright orange, but isn’t to sharp.
  • I was informed to change the text colour from a light grey to a darker grey, keeping consistent throughout. This was mainly for printing reasons, as they stated it would print better.
