PORTFOLIO REQUIREMENTS

 

Create an online portfolio that showcases your design specialty.

  • IMPORTANT: Put your strongest work FIRST.

  • Include your name on your website/portfolio.

  • Portfolio elements should showcase your thought process when designing a show. To do this, we STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you to include:

 

:: ​mood boards or other samples of your inspiration

:: ​design sketches

:: ​descriptions of the design intention

:: ​photos of the final product (for those designs that became produced show).​

  • We encourage you to showcase designs from more than one show if possible.

  • Ultimately, the more information we have, the easier it will be to evaluate the artistic merits of your design process and choices.​​

  • If you want to showcase more than one design specialty, you may include all work on the same website.
