"I completed Portfolio Bootcamp and it is honestly the best industry course I have done. Leslie provided me with a system to build a portfolio that is current and designed to get me the work I want."
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 ideal clients and products?
Portfolio Bootcamp is here to help you uncover your unique place in the industry and help you to market to the right market!
Create a portfolio that will get you more clients and more sales!
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? Ready to create designs that your dream clients can't help but want more of?
"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."
