What is the Online Portfolio Printing Course about?

Taking your portfolio from digital to print is an essential skill of design including how to get a flow of your work in a book, (this is different to a website and gallery). It teaches you an understanding of colour management and calibration from computer screen to printer as well as the different layout options. We also discuss how the use of a specific paper can change a look and feel of a project.

Your teacher will spend a lot of one-to-one time with each student to select the best images and help them structure the portfolio. You will finish this course with your own professional portfolio that we will post to you 1st class. Our books can be repaginated so can be customised for individual clients.
