About the Course
There is no getting around it. Portfolios are required for creative jobs. The better your portfolio, the better your job prospects.
And, since the industry is always changing, what was relevant yesterday, is not today.
Prepare Your Portfolio will help you to create the online presence and the self-promotion materials you'll need to put your best foot forward.
If you’ve been putting this off, I want you to know that you can do this. Building your portfolio for your dream job starts with this first step.
In this course you’ll get:
- One-on-one instruction, tailored for your portfolio and your goals.
- Training focused on building your custom portfolio including sizing up and curating your work, and understanding the different portfolio types (and there are a lot of choices).
- We'll work on your digital portfolio, website, project layout and design, written strategy, platforms, promotions, and showcasing your process work the right way.
- I've included detailed course work, links, interactive PDFs, resources, and portfolio building tools.
In the end, you’ll create, refine, and organize your portfolio, focused on the end goal of employment.
See the possibilities. You have the strength, passion, and persistence to reach for the stars.
What Makes This Course Special?
The reality is that most creatives cannot adequately evaluate the quality of their own portfolios. It is difficult to take a good, hard, critical look at our own work and ask ourselves, How does my work compare with other creative work? Can I improve the work? What do employers want? Is it the best that I can do?
Unfortunately, industry creatives are too busy to spend time assessing portfolios and college professors are often so out of touch with the industry that they have little to offer.
This course helps you make informed decisions. You’ll be able to understand if your portfolio is too narrow and needs more diversity or if you need to roll out a project. You’ll also learn the types of pieces to include for different industry jobs. You’ll have the tools needed to assess, plan, and act.
Whether you’re building a portfolio from scratch and need a game plan or you’re adjusting an existing portfolio for a new career path, this course will get you there.
This Course is ideal for: Copywriters, Graphic, UX/UI, & Visual Designers, Art Directors, Content Writers, Ad Strategists, Creative Technologists, Marketers, and aspiring Industry Creatives.
I'm Here for You.
I’m here to support you during your portfolio building process.
I’ve been teaching portfolio classes for more than 15 years! Since I’ve worked with students and working professionals from all over the country, I can look carefully at your portfolio and give you honest advice. I’ll meet one-on-one with you online in a video chat to go over your current (or proposed) portfolio and answer any questions you have.
This course includes:
- A One Hour Pre-course Portfolio Review so that you know where you stand now, and how to move forward. We'll meet online.
- Portal Training Sessions to give you the tools to succeed. Each session includes proprietary, downloadable, portfolio creation tools. We will review each session together.
- A 4-Week Intensive Portfolio Building Bootcamp where we meet weekly (online) to go over your work. I'll be critiquing your portfolio as you progress.
I'll work one-on-one with you on content and on execution.
Everything for $595.00

Take a look at some portfolio examples examples from former students who now work in the creative industries.
Get started now!
Years ago I saw that creative bootcamps, portfolio schools, and most design and ad programs aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. There is no good fit for the working adult or for the student who needs to learn remotely. Plus, the one-size-fits-all portfolio doesn’t work for career opportunities that are opening up in creative industries, every day.
As Co-founder of Portfolio Studio and Founder of Portfolio MasterClass, I’ve tailored my courses to fit HOW students want to learn through self-directed studies, small group learning, team, and one-on-one courses. The teaching methods I use can help you develop your creative thinking and unique talents for transformation.
My grads have landed jobs in top-notch agencies and studios in the US and around the world. They’ve won numerous awards including ADDYs, Clios, and recognition in publications including Print, Archive, CMYK, & Applied Arts.
When we work together, I’ll tailor a very specific path for you, to meet your career and creative goals.
