Receiving feedback on your portfolio aided in your growth and development while in college, so why wouldn’t you pursue the same as a professional?
Sure many creative/artistic individuals receive this feedback from clients or the team they work with. However, studio artists or those who are looking to develop a self-reliant business around their artwork need a strong portfolio to attract buyers/clients.
When could a portfolio critique be helpful?
- Job Search: Time to update your portfolio in pursuit of a new position
- Studio Artist: Building a portfolio for buyers, showings, and residency applications
- Own your own artistic/creative business
Your portfolio, as an artist, is your BRAND! Having an experienced outsider provide clear feedback to drive your brand in the direction of your professional goals can be the turning point for the work you create and the opportunities that come your way. Crystal Palette Management offers portfolio reviews for artists at all stages of their careers with a focused attention to your long-term professional goals.
If you are experiencing a lull in buyers, online traffic, interviews, or creative inspiration a Professional Portfolio Review will help move you forward.
You’ll walk away with clear messaging and direction for your brand as an artist. Just as it feels good to spring clean your closet; organizing and removing the items you no longer want to hold onto, showing your portfolio the same attention (or greater) will yield benefits to the time you spend creatively and the community you attract.
