My graphic design portfolio for 2010 has finally been updated! It can be downloaded by clicking on the above image. There are a few projects that I had to leave out of the online version since they are client sensitive but I should be able to add them in over the next few months.
Most notably, I updated the branding throughout, trading in Helvetica and Bodoni for DIN and softening the black and white color scheme with a trio of grays.
The introduction page is solid type and lists some of my favorite things about design. It was included last year as well but was much more bold, with two darker grays.
I added in a page this year that lists some of my clients so that people can get a quick idea of who I’ve collaborated with.
I always start my book out with a page of logos. It’s a nice demonstration of the variety of companies I’ve paired up with since they cover photographers, record labels, bands and more.
The descriptions on each page are all done in DIN and correspond with the three color swatches listed above. I am still deciding whether to add in a serif typeface for the body text later on.
The biggest challenge when faced with creating a layout with multiple images is still making sure that there’s ample white space so that the work can breathe. And, if there’s only one or two images, it can also be difficult to create a layout that’s compelling. This year, I worked a lot more on creating visual interest throughout the pages.
I usually try to do a big portfolio update every six months and will have much more to add and change out at that point. Happy 2010!
