Digital Portfolio Assessment
Your Online Brand
Using Weebly.com, you were expected to design a website that celebrates your creativity and your knowledge of art. The website should have separate pages for the following:
The site should be clean, easy to navigate, and should help the viewer understand your process. Websites for Art 3 students should have all work created during Art 3 in both the portfolio and sketchbook pages. Art 45 student websites will edit out earlier works and should contain only your best work.
TIME ON TASK : 25 points
Have you been invested in this process, or are you just doing it because it is required? The reflection of your time investment is clear in how organized and clearly you present your work on your site. The images of your work should be crisp, clear, and well edited.
CRAFTSMANSHIP: 25 points
Details are everything when it comes to your personal brand. Have you noticed the details and made sure there are no loose ends? Does every aspect of your site look like it was made with care, or have you neglected parts? Think of this portfolio as the resume you hand in when applying for that job you really want. Every last detail of your site should be considered, and nothing should look as if it wasn't deliberate.
FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS: 25 points
Do you have all the components required? The directions require a minimum of three pages that include a portfolio page, a page for your artist statement, and a page that showcases your sketchbook.
OVERALL DESIGN QUALITY: 25 points
"Design is the foundation of all the arts" -Paul Rand. "Design" is the set of rules that govern aesthetics, and it underpins everything inside of a good brand. When your portfolio site is viewed by a designer, how do you think it will be received? Does your site make you look more professional then you are? If it doesn't, you have work to do. Your site should be clean and easy to navigate. The images and language you use to describe your learning should reflect careful attention and dedication. If this is not true of your site, make it be true. Don’t settle for average, aim for exemplary.
