Digital Portfolio or the Printed One?
Today the horizons of Graphic Design applications are broadened from print media to online interactive media. This includes responsive design, multimedia, e-learning, web advertising, etc. with interactive elements embedded in it. It’s required for Graphic Designer to showcase these personalised collections of visual designs in the form of a portfolio which is a virtual showcase of designers’ work. Primarily portfolios can be designed in two formats; Print and Digital. Print portfolios are mainly hard copies, which are static and hence generate lesser publicity. Also, only the best projects in a booklet format, which can only be perceived and appreciated physically. Additional, convenience in handling hard copies and affordability in distribution sometimes become major concerns. On top of it, updating portfolio is most of the time equivalent to reprinting entire portfolio.
