Exactly one hour after the first day of Collide Creative Technology Conference wrapped up, video game theme music could be heard echoing from the main stage. Setting the theme of ‘leveling up your portfolio’, the music by Nerd Army welcomed attendees to the start of the third E3C + Behance Portfolio Review.
A few months ago I was sitting down with an E3C member to help them work out some ideas surrounding blogging. They were looking at starting to blog as a companion to their work as a designer and illustrator but they were stuck on one detail; where to start.
