“The package is a piece that I send to potential employers that showcases my design work. I produced about 20 pieces that I either send as a precursor to attempting to obtain an interview or as a leave-behind after an interview. In either event, it is designed to help me stand out from everyone else, which it has done very well.

There are about 12 samples of work inside the canister. Each sample gives a brief description of what the project entailed and my role in it. Each work sample also directs the viewer to my website where they can see that particular piece of work in its entirety.”

    hey, that`s exactly what i do too. i bought some cheap tin DVD cases (~1eur each) and they really look great. my printed portfolio is inside and the impact & first impression is great.

    @andi- Cool. Yeah, I’ve had only good feedback on this concept. Most people don’t want to spend the financial or time investment on something like this. But those of us who do know how much of an impact it makes. Thanks for posting!

    I love this! Who do you use to produce these for you? I’d love to price this for my own use.

    A very nice idea. Again how do you get these produced?
    Are they expensive and what sort of size are they?
    I have been looking into some ideas other than the standard
    portfolio in the black case myself and this is a very
    nice change from the foldout poster.

    Nice work. Very clean. I’m working on a leave-behind portfolio book right now and this is a good piece of inspiration.

    I can’t help but notice. Is your name in the Canon typeface?
