Trying to decide what format to put your portfolio together in? Creativity is always appreciated, but interior design employers do have a preferred portfolio format they want to see. Syracuse University and the American Society of Interior Designers asked over 500 interior designers, all in a position to hire, what they wanted. Here is what they said were their preferences in an interior design portfolio:
• The preferred format by interior design employers is an 11” x 17” size in a portrait layout.
• Keep the layout as consistent as possible. Avoid changing from portrait to landscape in your portfolio if you can.
• Show anywhere from five to seven projects within twelve to fifteen pages.
