In the press: Graphicdesign.com
Our creative director Dave Gorum recently picked up his electronic pencil for the folks at graphicdesign.com to outline his best practices for constructing a kickass portfolio. It's his gift after more than a decade spent flipping through them to create Carbonmade and to hire good people. We've pulled out a couple of his suggestions below, but be sure to mosey on over and read the full article for yourself. We hope it helps creative hirers and portfolio cobblers alike!

Keep the presentation simple, the artwork big, and your contact information easy to find and you’ll be light decades ahead of your competition.
