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 how organize your design portfolio. In this day and age, I think, it's important to not only have a physical portfolio, but also a digital portfolio. Depending on where you're applying for jobs, people are looking for different things, and different skill sets. So, I think, it's better to be safe than sorry and have all your bases covered. So, I'm going to show you my physical portfolio today. And then, just keep in mind that, what I did was, I took each category. And the way this is organized, I organize that onto a CD, that I could also pass out. That was really simple, has a home page, easy to navigate through, and it's the same thing, just in digital form. So, starting off, you want to find a portfolio that is professional, simple, sleek, you don't want anything that's bedazzled or hot pink. You want this to look professional, as you're trying to find a professional job. You can never go wrong with black leather, sleek and simple. Then, how you organize it, I use these tabs right here, for each different category. First, sit down and think of which categories you need to include in your portfolio. For me, I included an introduction, which is my resume here, I included commercial design, residential design, showroom displays. Which for you maybe, some other special skill that you might have. I had made display boards for a previous employer, and I though that it would be great to show that I could offer that to a new company. I have technical skills, which include drawings, Auto Cad, electrical plans and cabinetry specifications. So that they can see you are capable in that way and then, references at the end. And then, what I did was, I just took pictures of each board or project to make it more movable and to make it portable, and put it in sleeves. And there you have it. Thanks for joining me today, I hope you found these tips helpful. To see more of my work, go to
