My reflection of this class. As I look through the videos for this class that I always found very informative I realised how important it is to show case your work if you like to have any success in the creative business world. I set up my portfolio with some of my work and will add many more later as it takes a bit of time to ensure only your best work is online.
I would promote this ideas to any young student if they are looking at getting a job and promoting themselves .
What I really like about the bechance and portfolio is how well they are interfaced with each other. I had assignments on my Bechance page that I do not want on my portfolios pages and I courld easily just change the setting to change that. Now I only have the best work on my portfolio.
What is hard for me it the time it takes to prepare the file before uploading it because I shoot many of my work in raw meaning I always have these huge files that I need to change to an online size. Is there an easier way to do them all at once I heard of batch processing before.
Portfolio have endless options for employers who are looking for great artists and some of the portfolios I saw make me realise how many extremely creative people there are out there.
This inspires me to do better and to promote my work more. Learning the software was easy Adobe make it so easy to work between all the different Adobe apps and this make our lives as artist so much better.
To conclude portfolio is an amazing tool the best way ever to promote or showcase your work.
My reflection of learning was a steep learning curve because even if I do know most of the software I used in this course there was still aspects of each that I have not use before. Using spark video was the most challenging but the most rewarding when I got it to work.
This course gave me so much insight in my own business as graphic designer and lots of reminders on how important your logo and online branding is and how your clients perceive it.
These day the online branding plays an important role because the competition is very strong out there and because the technology makes the world smaller and smaller employers have so much more variety of artist to choose from.
But the artists also benefit from this as we have now so much more opportunities to showcase our work out there.
The content and assignments was of a high level and interested. Visual material was of a high standard and each of these videos was worth watching. This course remind me of how much hours it take to create all these different aspects for the online media. It is best to do it right from the start and to learn student the importance to do it correct.
The work submitted from student in this course was of a higher level as what I experience from the other courses I completed in the past.
Presenters/ tutors - like always great and supportive
Overall this was a fantastic course .
