Think marketing. You are selling a product. That project just happens to
be you. Know your audience and create a portfolio directed to them. The
portfolio can be a three-ring binder (preferably a new one), or it can be a

had good luck with smaller leather portfolios, but I'm thinking that I might
borrow some ideas from John. (Thanks John.)
