Course Content

The course aims to get students prepared to enter professional life through visual self-branding and self-expression, by providing the necessary visual communication skills needed for the creation of business cards and personal portfolios. In the fourth year of undergraduate education, students need to start shaping a portfolio that will present their design works, approaches and processes in an effective, appealing and easy to understand manner. This design portfolio will be necessary after graduation to get employment or to be accepted in a graduate design program. Furthermore, the portfolio will also help students obtain sponsorships from industry for their graduation projects.
