Hi, my name is Erica Lugbill, and I own Lugbill Designs, a residential interior design and remodeling firm in Chicago. Today I'm going to be covering things to include in your design portfolio. Here I have my portfolio that I made back in college. On the first page, I included my resume. I think this is a great way to start out your portfolio. It's very important and keep it nice and short but it does give a great overview of your skills and writing. Then I included commercial design and the important thing is to keep everything very sleek and crisp and sharp and clean, and that will make it look professional. And also make sure you have the correct categories displayed. So here I started out my commercial design. Projects that I did on the side and then also school projects. Next I went on to residential design. So again I just included, these are pictures of my actual design boards that I have created as it's a lot easier to carry your own pictures and I think it shows the work well enough. It gives your future employer or whoever may be looking through this a really good overview of your skills. Then I did kind of a miscellaneous category of different things just showcasing different talents that I had. I put together boards for the old showroom that I worked for. So I took pictures of those and arranged them and included it. I think it's good to show variety and show that you're versatile. Then be sure to not forget your technical skills. Here I included my autocad drawings showing that I can draw out and design and plan a kitchen and also electrical drawings. Then any other special drawings or special skills that you may have. Be sure to include them in your portfolio, just to show your wide range of talents. And then at the very end, I have my references. Thanks for joining me today and I hope you found these tips helpful. To see more of my work go to
