Passion Projects & Your Portfolio

Increasingly designers are putting projects that show their passion for a particular topic in their portfolio. During the job application process, these passion projects often end up making more of a connection with hiring managers than regular client based commercial work.

Join us as we ask our panel the following questions:

  • Why are passion projects so important for your portfolio?
  • What kind of passion projects work best?
  • Where do I find inspiration?
  • Should I look for ‘real’ passion projects?
  • Can I turn a passion project into a job?
  • moderator
