If you are a recently qualified designer or student designer it is difficult to show a portfolio of design work to potential employers when you haven’t yet had the opportunity to work on many projects. One option is to work on “dummy/fictitious” projects to try and fill in the gaps where you feel you are lacking a little design experience.
On my design resources page I have included one of my own previous briefs, but lots more can be found at www.desktoppub.about.com. Amongst the briefs is a business brochure, calendar, posters, logos etc.
All the briefs are print based, maybe some of you know of some web or interactive practice briefs you could suggest too?
