Creative Self Promotion
November 29, 2012
For the creative self-promotion piece, I chose a portfolio done when the designer, Susan Redmond Murphy was a student. Her piece has a distinct balance between being eye catching and artistic and being a portfolio.
In the portfolio, you can clearly see the presence of necessary information with the text and the inserted booklet that has her best work laid out in a straight forward way. By adding more subtle backgrounds she allows the work to speak for itself. I enjoy the dark fuchsia color as well as the swirl design. Even the way she placed “print work” is typographically interesting and works very well. The last page comes with a removable business card which is clever and useful. Here is a link back to the blog where I found her work http://idesigniblog.com/2012/07/17/student-profile-susan-redmond-murphy/ and here is a link back to Susan’s actual blog with some interesting pieces http://susanredmondmurphy.blogspot.co.uk/.
