Interactive PDF Portfolio

For our final assignment for our InDesign class, we were tasked with creating an interactive PDF portfolio that we could present to potential employers and clients. For my portfolio I chose to highlight some of my successfully completed projects. These projects not only highlighted my graphic design skills, but my architectural/industrial design background as well as my project management aptitude. The interactive features of InDesign allowed me to add navigation throughout the document, as well as links to social media accounts. Using multi-state objects, I was able to highlight many more examples, images and details from each of the projects presented. I accomplished this by creating a carousel of images for each project with large images that could be cycled through using arrow buttons. This feature really gives the viewer a much better view of all the elements I was trying to present. Until this course I had never used InDesign for anything beyond print and desktop publishing. Even when I was creating presentations they were rather stagnant and lacked animation, transitions and interactivity. These features will really help me create more dynamic presentations that I can not only present myself, but offer as a service to my clients in the future.

    Great piece Hananel. It really helps potential clients/employers when you include your process images. They are almost as important as the final product. You have a great sense of design and layout. All the best in your future endeavors. – J.
