What’s a job without work? What’s a claim without evidence? What’s a person without personality? In all these scenarios, the job, the claim, and the person would be nothing without something to back it up. A thorough and engaging portfolio can do just that for you trying to build your creative career. The digital world has expanded the creative spectrum for artistic people to have many options when it comes to constructing their portfolios. A portfolio can come in the form of a website, demo reel, animation, or a simple scrapbook, but the purpose of them is all the same: it summarizes who you are and reflects that in your work.
Employers are looking for creatives who let their work speak for itself. It almost goes along with the saying, “I can show you better than I can tell you.” You can tell someone anything, but for them to be able to see the work for themselves adds another impression on employers and overall boosts your chances of reaching a career goal.
Why create a portfolio?

The art field does not have a linear career path, and as an artist being able to understand and utilize all resources is crucial to your success. Your portfolio is a great tool to showcase your work, skills, and individuality, and make a name for yourself. The sooner you start your portfolio the better, no matter what stage you’re at in your career, the benefits of having one outweigh if not having one at all. No matter what profession of art you are trying to achieve, your creative mind should show in your work. Your portfolio is a great platform to present this for enhancing your career.
