Book Design, Illustration
Design students are constantly confronted with the unspeakable task – creating their own portfolio. It starts with applications for degrees and internships, continues with awards and summer schools and does not stop with the first jobs, each time beautifully designed of course. In the master program of Social Design students from all disciplines come together. Many of us have never had anything to do with design before, which is why a separate course is dedicated to portfolio design.
In a witty, astute and even more contradictory way, Brigitte Felderer and Anna Vasof show their students the importance of portfolio making. One could not resist translating this instructive seminar in pictures and putting them on paper. The result is a booklet filled with sketchy illustrations (created during the seminar), the corresponding memoirs and a lot of self-irony that puts the art of portfolio making in a nutshell.
