Long-Term Curation2:19 with Devin O'Bryan
Finally, we explore how to best use your energy when updating your portfolio over time.
Here we are, the final chapter. 0:00 But it's a very important and 0:03 it may actually be the toughest part of this entire course. 0:05 The long term curation of your portfolio. 0:10 Because let's face it, maintenance is hard, but so worth it. 0:14 As you grow in your discipline and craft you'll encounter projects that 0:22 you wanna brag about and others you'll wanna forget forever. 0:28 It's during that growth though that you'll need to intentionally take time to stop 0:33 and assess whether you'd like to include something new in your portfolio. 0:38 It's worth sitting down to do this at least twice a year to collect 0:44 the materials that you'd like to include in your portfolio. 0:48 Whether it's from your current job or from a personal project. 0:52 If it is from your current job, be sure to curate it so 0:57 that you can benefit from discussing it during your performance reviews. 1:00 In terms of the overall timeframe of maintaining your portfolio, a brief glance 1:04 at your write ups or the visual quality at least once a year would be wise. 1:09 Occasionally, you'll notice that you could stand to trim down some copyrighting. 1:15 Or maybe the projects you're showing have been updated or even upgraded and 1:20 the overall aesthetic is no longer accurately represented on your site. 1:25 Carve out time on your calendar to make adjustments. 1:30 However you approach it, you wanna make sure that you're 1:36 continuing to accurately represent what you value and 1:41 the process it took for you to arrive at your goal. 1:45 During our time together we dug into different types of 1:49 portfolios while establishing the best way for 1:53 you to show your work, personality, and interests. 1:57 I hope for the very best for you. 2:02 And, remember, have fun with this process, after all it shows in the end product. 2:05 Thanks so much for your time and good luck in curating, designing, 2:12 and maintaining your collection of work. 2:16
