One of the favorite things I get to do as a consultant is to help build a portfolio. I’ve tried to describe my process before, and I’m sure I will again, but until I do, you really need to read this fabulous interview with C. Monaco of Monaco Reps.
In particular, note that she looks at lots of images, old and new, and tells stories with the work. That’s really the crux of it all.
Now, how you get there, that’s the trick. 🙂
