Associate Director and Program Director of Interior Design in The Design School, Diane Bender is the author of Design Portfolios: Moving From Traditional to Digital, 2nd Edition (Fairchild Books, fairchildbooks.com).
Today's students of architecture, interior design and landscape design need to master the art of marketing themselves via both traditional printed and digital portfolios. Bender's book enables students to create portfolios that serve as evolving collections of creative solutions to design problems and evidence of their abilities to visually relay abstract concepts and concrete messages.
The book is used as an introductory textbook in design programs across North America. Addressing issues of creation, maintenance, and presentation with the latest technologies and social media tools, the book guides students through every step of the interview and presentation process from making first contact with practitioners to securing an industry job.
