Kill your portfolio
12 Tips from Soon in Tokyo™

 



Who I am?
Figure out what you need
Your values
Your interests
What makes you Unique
Sport your strength and build your portfolio around it

Who are you trying to reach?

Identify your target
Find out as much as possible about it

Line Portfolio with your target

 
Try to find your own tone and style 
Chatty?
Serious?
Friendly?
Fairly?
Fresh?
Minimal?
Don’t build claims or projects that do not reflect you
 
The best of the best. Or nothing
Use YOUR best work
Your portfolio is your best cover letter
 
The content is always more important than the container
Don’t «DECORATE» your portfolio, let the work SPEAK FOR ITSELF

  Show your skills and measure your ambitions
Show what you are the best at

Let your target know which is your best skill and what is your goal

 
Do not innovate. Not today
Show all the steps of your project
Concept – Research – drawings – moodboards – Lookbook – Inspirational videos.

Remember! Document your projects from the start

Extra point for real work
Balance the academics with real stuff, start a real project, get a partner, work on something you like besides school projects

Show your contact information

You are a brand

Everything communicate - your clothes your attitude, your body language, your hair and make up

 
Your Portfolio is never finished
