I'm due to hand in my graphic design degree portfolio in a couple of weeks, and the way everything has worked out means I've got a lot of books and pamphlets that are A4 sized at the most. I've got an A1 and an A2 poster, but they both fold down into A4 size the way they're packaged too. Because of this, I'm not going to mount them (what's the point of mounting a book?!) and my briefs are in a A4 pamphlet, so I basically have a stack of books, magazines and papers to present. I currently have a bog-standard A3 black portfolio, but it isn't really the best way to present a stack of books, as the stack is much deeper and smaller, so I'm looking for other options. I was thinking maybe buying a box, or making a box, or maybe buying or making a kind of mini suitcase type thing. I'm thinking well made and still professional but a little bit different. Have any of you knowledgeable lot seen any nice portfolios or boxes used to present this kind of work? Any good sources for ideas or buying them? What are your thoughts on these kind of 'alternative' portfolios - pointless, or a nice touch? If someone brought one to interview would you think "pretentious nob" or "makes the extra effort"?! Thanks for any input, it's much appreciated. Edit: The best option so far I think is to make something like this, perhaps in a grey or brown rather than black, but I'd appreciate any nifty alternative suggestions.
