    So this post is for anyone with a little time, anyone thats feeling helpful, or who just likes there opinions known. I have a presentation next week and have been showing my portfolio to endless clients and am getting bored with what's in it. It hasn't been updated in months either.

    All you have to do if your so inclined is check the link below and tell me what your favorites are, what you love and what you hate. Thanks for taking the time, cheers.

    I like that truth one, and really like the blue headphones. Just quickly looked through - all very nice.
    Did you print your own stuff or did you go to printers?

    hmmm

    Looking at forums, social networks, and youtube, I would think people had endless time on there hands... Guess I missed that conclusion. lol

    Thanks dal for taking the time to look a bit. I do like both of them, the truth one has been in the portfolio since the day it was made.

    Since my favorite local printer got a sweet digital printer I've been getting everything done there. It's so easy and with the excellent quality and price it makes no sense spending so much money myself for a nice printer, ink and time to get it right.

    I liked the Lucelec advertising and St Lucia Music Awards poster.

    Top End and Serious Ting are too similar in layout, but all the rest of these are very good examples of design. It may look boring because you have looked at it so many times.

    I hire my fair share of graphic artists so you piqued my interest enough to want to take a look. I have to say that this is a really good body of work. I like how you adapt your style to the client and project. Not everything to constrained a particular style. The typography is fresh as is the color and layouts (when you could). If you were to walk into my office with that portfolio, I'd be interested.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I know I'm just bored with everything since I present it all the time. There's only so many times I can do the same thing over and over again. Thats one of the reasons I don't have any one particular style (I like to say my style is good design :)), that and one style only works for one type of company.

    I'll be changing things around next week to keep things fresh.

    Thanks much,
    Michael
