portfolio

So, the heart of the matter then. You've either read enough of my articles and words and fancy seeing if I not only practice what I preach but whether am actually any good. I've always struggled with not only how to present my work but also what to present. You may have read my article The Big Portfolio Con about the subject of graphic design portfolios (if not, give it a quick read, go on, I'll wait) in which I point out some things to watch out for when being wowed by some ones body of work. So having wrote that I decided to rework my portfolio. Not only have a I stripped it back a bit I've really tried to photograph the printed work, show you it in a real world application. I  love the look of the designs done as art as everything is crisp and just as you want it, but truth is it's easy to show what you wanted to do and not what was actually done, as well as work that you'd like everyone to think you had done but was just in fact concept. 

I've broken the list up as you see below so I could showcase it easier for you with three of my clients getting their own section (as they have the most (and varied) work and deserve their own place, with the rest split into products.
