Our brief is composed of many elements that come together, from gathering clues, investigating and experimenting.
I would like my portfolio to be made up of a few pieces of evidence, that altogether tells the story (such as the example from Geoffrey, where a box contained all his portfolio).
These individual elements should supplement one another. They would be individual Case Studies. I like the idea pamphlets, editorial style booklets, stitched and folded material …made up of many pieces. I’m also interested in adopting a Illustration style for my portfolio.
I started looking at a template for the ‘Staircase’ – Case study #1, which you can see bellow . This for example would include all my research of the 3D object in a booklet format (just oversize A4). I would like to include a assembly instruction pamphlet, and alongside there is a ‘post card’ style card where you may cut out and assemble a ‘impossible staircase’ yourself!
Bellow is a mock up idea of the pamphlets and folio.
Im still considering graphic layouts, currently is formatted as a magazine style, but I would like a layout that is less rigid. Each ‘Case Study’ will vary in format and size/ paper and print style, but altogether should be cohesive yet distinctive from one another.
Here is a PDF of the above layout…. Case Study #1
