How do I make my portfolio more appealing to American companies?

 

  1. Include both 2D and 3D drawings on your portfolio.
  2. Use 1-2 images per project and page.
  3. Make sure all your drawings are readable without the need of a 3x zoom-in.
  4. Use as little text as possible.
  5. Gather graphical information of your most important projects: flats, perspectives, sketches, drawings, computer graphics, diagrams and/or charts. Remember that quality is better than quantity.
  6. Choose a presentation format. We recommend a format that facilitates reading and printing: A4.
  7. Design a template. It is recommended that you use neutral background colors that do not distract the reader the basic content ( your plans, drawings , photographs , renderings, etc)
  8. Avoid text overload because architects are visually expressed. Your portfolio should convey professionalism, your skills freehand, layout, spatial vision, photo quality, etc. with good composition.
  9. Make an elegant and sophisticated cover. You can include your CV and your contact information (phone and email) on the front pages of your portfolio.
  10. To do this you can use programs like Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign or software platforms creating web pages: behance, Issuu
  11.  Cleanliness and order are very important. Check presentation and composition.
  12. Finally, save the file. Its size should not exceed 10MB to mail.
