Hello,

I have applied to Advertising courses and I have been sent some interviews.

For these interviews I have to take with a Portfolio, I have looked around but so far all I can see is advice for Art Portfolios, I was wondering if an advertising one is any different.

I really have no idea where to start, maybe people who are on advertising courses now can help me with what they put in their portfolios or people who are applying this year help me out.

Sorry, but I have no idea what to do and I'm getting quite stressed and worried over it, any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you very much in advanced!

Hi, What uni have you got an interview at?
Im a third year on an advertising course at uni.
What course have you been doing in college? I would take the aspects of what you enjoyed from that course and develop them into your portfolio, it would be good to add in a range of medias such as paint, computer work done, drawings etc because on my course we do everything from drawing up rough ideas, to maccing up the final ads in PS.
Hope this helps

Hey,
Thanks, I guess I shoulda said,
I have interviews at Bucks and Birmingham City
What uni are you at?
Well at the moment I'm doing my A Levels, English Lit, Product Design and Psychology...
I can do things on the computer, but I'm not very good at drawing or painting (I didn't do art for GCSE)
Do you think this will put me at a disadvantage?
Thank you so much for replying!

I'm at UCLan.
I would show them what you have done in your product design and also what you can do on the computer.
If even if you haven't done art as a G.C.S.E I don't think it will put you at a disadvantage.
If you lay it out clearly e.g if there are photographs put 4 or 6 per page no more it will look more professional.
Even if you have done things in your spare time that you have drawn recently then put them, in that you are proud of and that you think will be relevent. If you haven't got the interview for a good few month it might be good to just do a bit of drawing too, but dont worry about it I hated drawing ads when I started.
Hope the interviews go well.
