Our final exam is a formal one-on-one interview where you submit and present all the work you've done since the first portfolio. Make sure you have all your work printed, trimmed, and assembled. All digital files should be sent to me via email before our appointment. I will only accept PDFs, please don't send Illustrator or InDesign files unless I specifically request it.



I expect you all to act professionally and have your work with you at your appointment time. This includes printed and digital files. I'll deduct points if you're late or unprepared.



Please look at the syllabus for more details.
