Portfolio and Practice

Fall 2019

Taught By: Stuart Shanks

Section: A

CRN: 3375

Credits: 3

This course will focus on the design and production of an interior design or architecture portfolio. Students will be introduced to the fundamental principles and processes used to promote their work in both print and web formats. While a portfolio package is the final product of the course, the objective is threefold: to understand the design field in which you operate, where you and your work fit into it, and how you develop and promote your work in an accessible manner within the field. To meet these objectives, the course is organized in three parts: 1. Contextual analysis of existing monographs; 2. Printed portfolio and leave-behind mailer; and 3. Online exhibit. As a collection, the various mediums in which you represent your work should clearly and uniformly promote you and your identity as a designer. Discussions will include Professional Practice and Ethics.

Open to: All university undergraduates.
