    • Putting things in order and giving them numbers makes it easy for the interviewer – names and numbers!
    • The bigger the print the better! Print A1 colour if possible.
    • Screen grabs from movies or animations are critical. Also include: Format / length / colour or B&W / viewing details
    • A collection of 2D work can be presented in all sorts of different ways – this is especially true if you wont have time in interview to unpack, unfold or layout your work in the way you would like it to be seen [try unusual surroundings].
    • Books should have a few of their pages presented.
    • Try to present things as you would like them to be used.
    • Photograph the best pages of a sketchbook and put them all on a single card.
    • You can make little sets with a little lighting and photograph a selection of outcomes that might have spanned a project.

    • Pictures of exhibitions are fantastic to include. They show that you are audience and viewer orientated.
    • Videos and installations should have several stills presented with information on: length, format and presentation method.
    • Images of work in progress are a great way to show your thinking process.
    • All 3D work should be photographed and accompanied by details of materials and scale.
    • Close ups and different angles of 3D work printed together can make all the difference.
    • Large paintings need to be photographed and printed as large as possible. Always tweak images in Photoshop before printing. Consider putting the full image and a close up so that the painting method and technique is visible.
    • Interesting experiments that you have done along the way should be included.
    • Anything wearable should be photographed on a model, on a clothes hanger or mannequin.
    • If you have done large scale experiments that might not warrant a whole page in the portfolio, then photograph a few of these and mount them on a large piece of card together.
    • Create your own style of presentation by using pins, tape, labels etc, but keep it clean and tidy.
    • If you have a page in the sketchbook that might be letting it down then put something on it or take it out! Also consider the bulk and weight of any empty pages at the back of a sketchbook.
    • Include a sample of what it was made of to really get the idea across.
    • Large prints and double page spreads have a massive impact.
    • Contact sheets get loads of information across instantly.
