How can you make your portfolio more unified?

Portfolio Tip: In your portfolio each piece should enhance the work around it, and there should be a clear common thread throughout the portfolio.

Whether it’s obvious or subtle, all of the pieces should have a common theme.

This Ashcan student made three strong portfolio pieces by exploring one idea- a flower mask. These three works helped her portfolio look unified.

It’s difficult to come up with a strategy for your portfolio on your own, that’s why we’re here to help you. Joining one of Ashcan Studios Portfolio Prep classes can help you build your skills as an artist and find a theme for your portfolio, that will get you in to the top BFA programs like SVA, Parsons, Pratt, Cooper Union, RISD, Carnegie Mellon… and others.
