Starting up a Project & Creating Banner

Create your Portfolio Title Page

For your title, you are welcome to default to the name of your program or you can also come up with a unique title that reflects either the industry area, type of position or key knowledge and skills you have related to role you are aspiring to attain. Some examples for this particular program include “Refinishing and Refurbishing Technician”, “Furniture and Cabinetmaking Specialist” or “Furniture Maker & Designer”.

When selecting your banner photo, choose a professional photo of yourself, or consider choosing a background photo that demonstrates you skills or experience in the industry. Include a photo of you working in the field or on a relevant project. For the photo selected in this sample portfolio, you can see that the student is holding a banjo, a piece that they created in one of their wood working projects. The photo also has a vintage feel to it which depicts their woodworking style. You want the photos selected in your portfolio to truly reflect what you have to offer to an employer.
