Recently one of my previous graphics students, Eric, stopped by to visit. He had wanted to go to the same college as his dad, hoping to get into its visual communications program. Unfortunately his SAT and ACT scores were not good enough to qualify him for immediate admittance. Determined, Eric began sending the head of the visual communications program an e-portfolio he had created in my class with Acrobat Pro 9 incorporating all his Illustrator and Photoshop work. As Eric put it, he “finally wore him down!” The professor accepted him into the program based on his demonstrated work in his e-portfolio. He is working extra hard – thriving actually! Hip Hip Hooray for Acrobat Pro 9 and the ease of creating electronic portfolios!!!
