    matt! Impressed as usual, love the graphic style I've finally managed to set up an Etsy shop after my Signs of Affection project went crazy all over North America during the week: http://www.etsy.com/shop/paulprice09

    Cheers for that rundown Nagrub, I'm technically in the same boat right now trying to land internship and experience before I graduate.

    Looking for feedback on my design portfolio

    Yeah Leeds College of Art on Viscom, don't think there's anyone called Jen and Jess teaching on graphics but I'm not too familiar with their course. I'd go with what esar says as an employer, my view was just based on how I see things as someone interested in politics. It might be good to look at this mailer by Effektive, very good designer based in Glasgow: Here It's simple and clean and is all about the work and his experience. I don't think this is necessarily appropriate for you but simplicity done well with an emphasis on work and some clever copy writing is all you need. On another note you should make a large list of design agencies etc that you'd like to work for. Prioritise these from where you'd most like to work to where you aren't fussed about. Start sending out your portfolio, emails, phone calls etc to the places low on that list and see what the feedback is. You'll probably hear nothing back from any of them but that's ok, you'll just need a new angle which to some degree might mean creating new work or it might just mean you need to start networking with people who are working designers and get in that way.

    Recently there's been a big trend for using Indexhibit or Cargo Collective to host portfolios. They're clean, minimal and let the work speak for you. It's also important to remember that as a designer you're meant to be too busy to spend time making yourself a logo etc. I could expect any business card from a designer to be simple, clean and carefree. If you spend too much time looking at yourself in a mirror employers will think you have too much free time or you care too much about how you look.

    Any non-college work would be a plus. One major disadvantage of doing a design course is that you usually don't ever have experience of real clients and how shit they usually are or working with printers. If you can show you have essential skills in handling that type of stuff then it would be great.

    The election thing in your portfolio. I get that it's for the Economist but it's political and right wing which is maybe a bit of a risk to put into a portfolio as it could put some people off straight away.

    Please Give Me Critique Of This Logo

    This says to me "Oh another start up company who've outsourced to a printers in-house designer" You could probably start all over again and some up with something much more suited. Google "builders logo" and you'll see that 90% of logos in that industry are terrible but that's kind of been accepted, you should really move away from trying to do the done thing. I knocked this up quickly, I'm not saying you should do something exactly like this but it's more structured and less awkwardly friendly. I think a happy medium between the two would be good. I think the E graphic works nicely beside the black type and would be fine aligned left on a business card with details on the right. Edit: Ok I've decided, yours says "I use Linux" and mine says "I'm a biomedical research centre. In the middle is the answer!
