Portfolios For Graphic Artists

In order to get work, you'll need to show work. It's that simple. Nowhere is this more important than in the world of graphic arts. Your designs are your calling cards. So how much work should you put inside a portfolio?

Graphic arts professionals sometimes opt to show the quantity of work they have done. This is a mistake. It's better to choose 10 strong designs than twice as many mediocre ones. Sadly, the prospective client may remember the average designs the most. If this happens, your chances of being hired diminish.
