I just finished an introductory course to aesthetics and design, and the final assignment was to create a portfolio with all the exercises we completed during the course. Now, this was my first real experience with graphic design, and my work with some of the exercises (and the portfolio itself) was kind of half-assed at times, so don’t expect anything amazing. Also, the brushes are kind of just randomly put in there, since I didn’t really have any original design ideas … Still, I thought I’d put it up here, since it took some time to make. The portfolio was supposed to be based on a grid based design, but because of time issues this is mostly only used for the overall graphics, such as the framings, and heading and text positions. You can download the entire portfolio as PDF here.
