Kim Deuss: A Weak E-Portfolio

I chose Kim Deuss portfolio as a weak one because I felt she really didnt have much to look at. I think with a BFA at Parsons, I'd expect more; more designs, more creativity, more edginess, more of a portfolio. To me, the sketches she did have posted up were mediocre.

Jenny Lai: A Strong E-Portfolio

I thought that Jenny Lai, a senior studying Apparel Design at RISD, had a unique and interesting portfolio. I liked her sketches and illustrations. They went from being realistically drawn, to stylized, and then abstract. I also thought that the way that she drew her designs, showed her artistic skills. The textiles were intricate and you could see the naturalistic flow of the fabrics. Jenny also has had a lot of great work experience with design, including internships with subjects such as art, accessories, jewelry, and apparel design.
