    Hi all,

    I have few interviews next month and I was wondering what type of portfolio do you think is best to take, a A3 sized portfolio accompanied with sketchbooks of research or an A2 Sketchbook.

    Also I am a graphic designer but mainly for YouTube and streaming sites (E.G Twitch) and I was wondering if you would think that to be good to put in my sketchbook as well.

    What would you also recommend me to put in my sketchbook as I am also thinking about putting things like a few screenshots of my instagram page where I make videos and all the graphics on there are made by myself.

    If you want anymore information, feel free to reply on here.
    Thanks for reading and I hope you have a great evening

    An A3 sized Portfolio accompanied by a Sketch book, but keep it a small like A5 or something.
    You could try and upload your videos to a memory stick and if they have a computer there you can show them on, just bring it up to them. Keep it as a back up.
    If you make videos and graphics, try and take them stand still rather than off your instagram page. It would seem kind of tacky to show a screenshot of an instagram page. Either crop it down so it just show the still image.

    Good luck with your interviews, I hope I helped ever so slightly with your portfolio madness.

    I have 5 interviews coming up in the near future but I am struggling with my portfolio as I don't think I have enough work.
    Long story short, I am in my last year of college doing Graphic Design and the tutor we had didn't give us any help preparing for what we need to have and I am feeling so nervous about it.
    So far I have 5 projects which I can show them and talk about but I also feel that they aren't good enough as one was just a day brief we recieved about contrast and we had to take 9 pictures of things which had contrast. (We had to use a black and white filter because of the artist's style we were given).
    I have also got a large pile for my personal designs which contain Cinema 4D designs and I will also be talking about my work for social media in there as well.
    What do you think I should to add to my portfolio or what things do you think I can do to improve them?
