Notes and advise on the digital portfolio in the department of Fashion Design

Portfolio Size__________________

Porttfolio size in total maximum 20 MB. Up to 30 images (scans or photos, presented together in one pdf document: an explanatory help on data size reduction will follow from November 24th!)

The portfolio pdf document should contain a collection of current artistic works such as paintings, watercolors, prints, drawings, etc. and can also contain works such as sketches of ideas, photographs, textile works, experiments and designs.

No general theme or continuous narrative is necessary. 
Unfortunately, the commission can not open films, software, sounds, texts, websites such as Instagram or external links.Your works and not their presentation will be evaluated.We therefore ask to refrain from adding decorative elements such as passepartouts, typography, gifs or clipart.Please sort your work according to importance and topicality. Your most important work should open the portfolio.

Naming your works__________________

We ask for very brief, simple, keyword information about each work, such as medium/size, date of creation and the context in which the work was created. 
In case of a group project, please also name co-authors. In case of a supervised work, please name supervising persons and the course/project/institution.Please collect the information on a separate Info sheet.
