Your portfolio could be a physical thing, a journal or notebook, maybe more than one? A ring binder or presentation folder with plastic wallets? A4? A3?


Your portfolio can also be submitted digitally. If you choose this option you need to think about what format to use. You could store your images on a device such as an SD card or stick, upload them to a blog or facebook.

workbox:dfc is now available!

This is a closed Facebook group open to registered members. Working in conjunction with this website, it offers:

  1. a place to upload images of your work in order to gain feedback as you go through the course.
  2. a way to track your progress.
  3. a place to upload images of your completed Design Portfolio for assessment.

If you are doing Design For Craft just for fun, or intent to keep your portfolio entirely in hardcopy format, you do not need to register for the group but may do so if you would like some feedback on your work.


You can also have the best of both worlds. Create your portfolio as a journal or folder, then photograph the content and submit that online. That way you have the joy of a physical reference and don't have the hassle or risk associated with having to post or courier you work for submission.

There's no right or wrong to this format question. Go with what you are comfortable with. Whatever your thinking at the moment it is not set in stone, you can change your ideas as you go along. However it is worth bearing in mind that the format you choose may need to influence the way you complete some of the activities on this course. For example if you choose an A3 folder, do your activities on A3 paper.

Whatever method you choose you need to be able to share your portfolio with your assessment body.

Make sure your Portfolio is organised, methodical and easy for your assessor to find their way around it. Presentation is half the battle!
