For my physical portfolio I decided to simply buy a card folder and screen print onto the front of it this turned out to be a lot more difficult than I expected it to be . . . .
I started by looking at the website of David Pearson.
I found this series called Great Loves that I thought was very interesting I liked the text being at the top and bottom and part of the frame around the image and I started looking into patterns of my own to add to my cover.
I then looked at how I could display and orient the text in a way I liked.
I remembered looking at the non porous site in my lay themes research and I really like the kind of typefaces the designer uses and the use of outlined text with filled in text.
I found these two patterns on pinterest that I also liked and thought about making an abstract pattern that my cover text could work around I also looked back at The Graphic Design Manual and found this text and thought it could be interesting to have the text in this way.
Or maybe in the way Pearson has it in this cover.
