Portfolio Checklist

ADMISSION PART D: PORTFOLIO

 

Show us a selection of 10 up to a maximum of 25 self-made visual works, preceded by a creative process.

Your portfolio could include designs, objects, photos, films, games, animations, fashion (accessories), furniture, models, objects, drawings, sketchbooks, posters, campaigns, paintings, documentation of performances, collaborations, usable artifacts and sculptures and anything else you’ve made, designed, or thought of.

If possible, we would like you to include visualisations of your ideas, experiments, sketches, and any other documentation of your creative process.

The goal of the portfolio is to provide the assessors an impression of your previous visual development.
You get to decide yourself what qualifies as 1 work. This could be 1 painting, or a collection of 20 paintings. It could be 1 object, or a series + the research and process.

 

HOW TO PRESENT AND UPLOAD YOUR WORK

Make a digital document with a clear overview of your works (maybe by giving numbers to each work). Make pictures, videos or scans of your works + add the documentation of the process (text and image). Make 1 document file of your selected works (+ process) and include your full name + name of the assignment in the name of the file.  Each upload has a maximum of 50 mb.

For example: JANJANSEN_PORTFOLIO.PDF   

Accepted file formats: Powerpoint, PDF
(You can use for example Keynote or Word to make your presentation, but export and save the result in PDF.) 

 

VIDEO

If you made a video and you choose to upload your media to an external online platform (YouTube, Vimeo), make sure the link works, that there is no password or expiration date. If we cannot access it, it will not be looked at and that specific assignment will not be judged.

Keep in mind that the assessors have limited time and can’t view long video’s, or a lot of different videos. If you wish to showcase several videos or video’s longer than 5 min, for instance when applying for Audio Visual Design or Animation, we advise you to create a showcase/trailer to give a compact overview of the video work. Also, this way you can direct exactly what you want the assessors to view, instead of the assessors scrolling through the video’s and maybe missing the important parts.

 

WEBSITES

If you created an online environment for your portfolio, please make sure you present this with a direct link to the right page. The assessors will not search through websites, how great they may be.

If for some reason you use online databases, please check all links work and redirect to where the assignment can be clearly recognized.

 

NOT ACCEPTED MEDIA

We do not accept: Google docs links, dropbox, dozens of separate images, films larger than 50MB, zipfiles, We Transfer or other ways that require a download of your work.
