We’re going to start a series of posts I’m informally calling Which Portfolio Presentation is Right for Me?
Where we’ll cover everything from the basics: Style, size and color, and structure to the tiny details that can set you apart- embossing, color blocks, insets, screen printing. Let’s start with maybe the most basic decision, but an important one nonetheless. Landscape or portrait? Which one is the best to showcase you and what you do? We find that the same sorts of people working in similar media and fields tend to gravitate towards similar styles of portfolio, and with good reason.
Landscape or Horizontal Orientation:
Architects, Photographers, Industrial & Lifestyle Designers.
Many of our landscape portfolios, especially those that lay flat, are perfect for two page spreads for panoramics and- even for those who may work a lot in more vertical, portrait oriented work- fantastic for showcasing dyptics and triptics or photos alongside text.
our most in-demand style for visual artists. Some prefer our 11 x 17 inch landscape portfolios for extra horizontal space.
Portrait or Vertical Orientation:
playwrights, restauranteurs (the 11 x 8.5 inch format makes a gorgeous menu)
And, lest we forget, the Square Format!
This is both a sleek and versatile option. Adored by analogue photographers and those who love the symmetry and timelessness of square format. The 12 x 12 inch Coffee Table Style Portfolio is also a favorite for those wanting a custom book to hold those precious family
memories: for everything from baby books to Wedding albums!
