A portfolio is defined as a collection of assets. Designers, your prints are your assets. So let me ask you. Is your portfolio profitable? Are you getting it out in front of the right audience? Do you know your niche? Are you designing in alignment to your market? Do you have a market focus?
Portfolio Bootcamp is here to help you uncover your unique place in the industry and get your work in front of the right eyes!
Use my proven step by step method to create, curate and deliver a market aligned portfolio
When you design in alignment to your ideal audience, you take the guess work out of design direction, layout, aesthetics, client list, pitching and pricing. Can you imagine having a body of work that feels so uniquely you while simultaneously being in complete alignment to the needs of your clients and their customers?
"Leslie’s advice to clarify and focus in on my design niche, and study that market to truly understand and design for it in a commercially successful way, was career changing."
