Making a professional portfolio is a serious business, that is why I want it to have a serious look. Businessmen walk around with briefcases all the time, which looks very professional. That's why I decided to copy that look.
This briefcase shows some of my work in printed version, filed in a variaty of different archive folders. It organizes different subjects and projects featured in this portfolio. You could say it is the physical version of this website.
I chose to make a physical portfolio that I can take with me at all times to make sure I can present my work, with or without access to Internet. Plus I think it's a fun and interesting way to present my work to others.
At last I think this portfolio, with a selfmade interior, also represents me as a maker where I will always look for solutions that make new systems work.
