Speaking of videos.. Here's another great one by Leslie Burns-Dell’Acqua on ASMP's site. It starts out talking about web sites, then moves onto portfolios. Mine is featured shortly when talking about page layout.
It's geared towards those wanting to do high end ad work, but I think the advice is pretty solid for everyone.
Woah, revived thread.
I'll come back a little later today and read through all the advice posted. I'm getting ready for classes now, but I thought I'd pop in and thank you guys for the info.
