Portfolio Oomph

We've had a great start to 2015 and none better than collecting our award and meeting Dragon's Den star Theo Paphitis. If you missed our post in July last year then a quick update: we were selected by Theo in his Small Business Sunday #SBS initiative as a business he recognises and supports. We tweeted to him about our business and each week he chooses 6 businesses to retweet to his 435,000 followers.

Here at Portfolio Oomph we are totally committed to helping you with your portfolio and all our products are shown below. We also show how our products work together to making applying to art college as straightforward and painless as possible! We've spent a lot of time researching what help there is currently out there online for potential art students like yourselves. We've done searches for 'portfolio development tips', 'art college portfolio', 'interview advice for art college', and many, many other scenarios. I think the answer is clear; not much. That is why we have developed Portfolio Oomph.

I am so pleased to have seen this installation art piece earlier this week - Random International - Rain Room at the Barbican Centre in London. The video footage from the installation art in the interview at the bottom of this post is just stunning and I was a little disappointed to have missed the last dance performance of the exhibition that day before I was due to go down. I've been enjoying contemporary dance for years now and haven't really been to see any since our daughter was born nearly 5 years ago, so this was a shame.

Oh yes, it is - Oh no it isn't! Your art college portfolio is waiting for your attention...... He, he, just a little bit of fun. You're right, it is time to wind down, relax, and enjoy time with your family, etc. But if you can do just a few of the things on this checklist before you head back to school or college in January you will be getting one step ahead of the game with your art college portfolio. You will also give yourself some breathing space when your application to art college really kicks off at interview time.
