RUBRICS. What does a good portfolio look like?

What happened today

10 am   I was on my way to an interview at a school that uses projects and I called the office of George Moraitis.  The analyst who answered asked for the issue to be emailed to him (he claims to have hundreds of email messages) and he recalled the "Rhode Island proposal" when I said that I had met this condition.
He will contact me to arrange a meeting between himself, me and the legislative aide...   December 1

The topic eventually will look like this:  "What does a good portfolio look like?"
We will know one when we see it.

The examples below come from a blog that was found for me by my paper.li account (which delivered the following message):

A good portfolio is usually simple and
easy to navigate
A good portfolio has a simple theme and it is clear that someone has taken time to organize the elements.
It's nice if the portfolio is more than just words.
There is a plus if the student demonstrates facility in another language.  Does the student get into the mind of the viewer and attempt to do something with what he's learned?

Is the viewer tempted to use something that the student has assembled?


Does the student use language in a colorful way?

Here are some of the portfolios that caught my eye from a list of 10 front pages selected by a designer who "reads design books the way a hamster eats carrots."

Bogdan Sandu

Bogdan is a designer and editor at DesignYourWay. He's reading design books the same way a hamster eats carrots, and talks all the time about trends, best practices and design principles.


I looked closely at the details and I liked the earbuds...  but I didn't see anything unusual.
Perhaps I like the cup of coffee on the right.

Look at the image at the top...
Is that a chin surrounded by a hoodie? at the top or a bird's beak with a tongue?
MORE TIPS:
Give evidence that you keep in touch with a variety of sources.  What newsletters do you subscribe to?
My Paper.li account is one way that I use to keep open to what is out there.
