Ques. How do I prepare my portfolio to apply for Design School?

Ans.  A portfolio is a reflective document and should speak of who you are, rather than who you are expected to be. It should convey why you want to be a designer. Diversity is good but in trying to be comprehensive, you might miss expressing the essence of your work. Journeys are also an important-the process by which you reached where you set out to, not just the end-deliverables. People do not have the time to read a lot of text, so keep it minimal. However, an essay of reflections could auger well to communicate your vision, ideology/ purpose in life. At TDV the design village, they look at the underlying attributes of courage, perseverance, compassion and awareness in a student and their work.
