Given the relative unimportance of grades and test scores in M.F.A. and M. Arch. admissions, the design portfolio becomes the critical factor in determining the applicant's success. A great portfolio not only demonstrates the depth of your artistic vision, but also places the rest of your application in perspective. You must use the portfolio to explain the fundamental meaning of your designs, your projected audience and intention, and how your work addresses broader societal currents. Above all, you must create a beautiful object (your book) consisting of clear and well constructed projects, that will make even the busiest admissions officer respect you and feel compelled to admit you.
Get on board with us at our first meetup, were our design portfolio expert will be providing great insight on how to prepare an outstanding portfolio for your professional or graduate applications.
Here are a few things about our speaker:
