[MUSIC] 0:00 Howdy, I'm Devin, the creative director from bumble dot delivery and 0:09 IBM's project white space. 0:13 And I'll be guiding you on what it means to build and 0:15 maintain a portfolio of your work. 0:19 We'll dig into different types of portfolios, while establishing the best 0:22 ways for you to show your work, personality, and interests. 0:26 After all, you're likely showing off your work for 0:31 potential employers, or to develop new relationships in business. 0:35 To do all of this, though, we'll need to first define the word portfolio. 0:40 We'll define portfolio as a collection of design and 0:45 development outputs that showcase the skills and personality of the creator. 0:50 It's worth noting that even though the main idea behind creating a portfolio is 0:56 relatively simple, the actual practice of putting it together and 1:01 maintaining it requires skill and patience. 1:05 You'll need to consider a number of factors when building your collection 1:10 of work, like the voice of your personal narrative and describing your effort. 1:13 What not to include in your portfolio. 1:18 And how to navigate showing work co-created alongside others. 1:21 We have a fun course ahead of us. 1:27 So let's get started. 1:30
