Message from the course author :)

Hi guys, Joel here, the Founder & Creator of Briefbox. We've created this simple to follow, drip released learning path with one simple aim - to help you get your portfolio finished and out the door!

Working as Creative Director for over 10 years at a UK design agency, I've seen literally hundreds of portfolios in my time. I've used this experience to curate this learning path with the aim of helping you to include a varied set of stand out projects in a shiny new portfolio ready to go. You'll work through 8 varied design projects covering multiple disciplines and of our super friendly mentors will review your work once you're ready to go. Ready to finish your portfolio? Let's do this.
