What is a design portfolio? Why is it required for admission?
A design portfolio is generally a combination of Observational Art, Personal Art and Specific Requirements of the School. It is required so international design schools can assess a students drawing and design skills, observation, aesthetic sense, creativity and perception before admitting them into one of their art or design programs at graduate or post-graduate level.
