another factor to consider is shipping the portfolio. if you need to send it out, which i often have, it REALLY helps to have thought of this in advance and designed it to fit well within standard packing materials, like the fedex box, for example. Get an archival box for the portfolio, one that has a nice, close fit inside the shipping box provided by the shipping company you use most, and you can reduces the damage done to the portfolio in transit. if you spend as much time as i do creating these things, getting them back in good shape matters. also, remember that what people remember is the WORK. get creative in it's presentation if you want, it's never a bad idea, but the work has to do the talking. make it zippy, as hard-hitting as possible, and that's it. too many images can be bad. better to leave them wanting more. or have secondary materials to show if they ASK for more. jana b. >In our experience, *NEVER* ask the viewer to turn the direction of the >portfolio.
