portfolios and cards

I'm in the process of making a custom portfolio case for myself. I've got most of the hardware, but I haven't quite decided on the cover material yet. My portfolio has a teal accent color running throughout it, so I want to incorporate that into the cover.

Lucky for me, my classmate, Justin Lund, makes regular trips to Tap Plastic in Seattle; and he grabbed a couple of acrylic samples for me. They're amazing! The opaque one is a perfect match to my portfolio. The translucent one is tinted the same shade of teal and is frosted on one side. I'm thinking I'll use the translucent acrylic as the front cover and the opaque acrylic on the back. I'm very excited.

I've also been working with my brilliant graphic designer of a boyfriend, Riley, to design a sleek business card. The information section will probably change, but here's what I've got so far:


  1. i really like the color! and the type face for you.

  2. I need a link to my blog on my portfolio too...
