Add Yourself

For the 1st 5 weeks, we'll try 5 different platforms: 2 "blog" platforms, and 3 "portfolio" platforms. When you make each site, leave your URL as a comment here and I'll add you to the roster! In Week 6 you can pick one to use permanently. Leave that URL here too.

Final Choices

OK! Now that we've finalized on our Website/ePortfolio platforms, let's fill out our online presence. I'd recommend:

  1. Your own website
  2. LinkedIn
  3. Instagram
  4. One of the Art Social Networks (Behance, Portfolium, ArtStation, Dribble, Flickr, 500px, etc)

Private Instagram?

Many of you have Private Instagrams. For sure, how you set the privacy of your life is your business, not mine! However, obviously, a private IG is not that helpful from the perspective of promoting your work. Here are some options:

  1. Just keep it private
  2. Just make it public
  3. Keep your personal IG private, but create a 2nd professional IG that's public.

Presentation Days

Remaining Mondays:

  1. 6 Nov
  2. 13 Nov
  3. 27 Nov
  4. 4 Dec
  5. 11 Dec

Remaining Wednesdays:

  1. 8 Nov
  2. 15 Nov

If you'll leave your URLs for these platforms as comments on this page, I'll add them to the table below:

Websites, Social Media & Critique Dates

Your critique date isn't "for your grade," it's just to get feedback from your classmates to help you make choices and improve the presentation of your work.

  • Green: website has been discussed in class
  • Yellow: scheduled to be discussed
  • Red: please LMK what date you'd like us to look at your site
