Digital portfolio package

Having the skills and time to create your digital portfolio from your art school portfolio can be challenging. Not only do you need to create a cracking portfolio including sketchbooks. But you need to be able to represent this physical portfolio in a digital format.

Quite inconveniently many of the colleges require your work to be submitted in differing formats. This includes file sizes, categories and quantities of pieces.

Portfolio Oomph can help you to relieve the burden of your art school portfolio.

  • review, advise and edit the content of your actual portfolio for inclusion in your digital portfolio.
  • scan and/or photograph your work (optional, if you want to do this yourself).
  • compile your digital portfolio for you.
  • £460 for one college/uni application. To re-format this for more colleges we charge £60 per additional college.

*If you're not able to attend sessions in person we can work via Skype. You will need to digitise your art school portfolio yourself to send to us.

We have 2 options. We can meet for 2 x 2hour sessions as outlined below. Or we do find that scheduling a full day together, we can nail it in one session! The cost is the same.

Session 1: We meet initially with your work for 2 hours to assess your folio and make a plan of action. In this first session we will:

  • look at the digital portfolio requirements from your chosen college/uni course.
  • review your work and plan where your work fits into their categories of development, final and context. (Or other groupings as requested by the college/uni).
  • £80 is payable at the end of this session. If we are to proceed with the digital portfolio application further payment of £380 is due prior to further commencement.

Following this initial meeting we will then:

  • photograph and/or scan your work to college/uni specification.
  • compile your digital portfolio to 'draft' stage.

Session 2: Portfolio Oomph will then meet for one more 2 hour session where we will finalise the images for you to upload and sign off the digital portfolio.

"The prospect of creating and organising a digital folio alone was pretty daunting. I felt uncertain and a little bit lost as to where to start. Portfolio Oomph helped organise and compile my folio whilst also giving me confidence in the digital folio I presented. The support given was hugely beneficial as it helped me understand what the universities wanted from a digital folio and ensured that I met all deadlines in advance."  Hazel Laing – successful entrance into 2nd year at ECA.

"It was really helpful to take out a full day to get it all done. Otherwise I would have had no idea how to display my work and show it off the best I could. The day was relaxed and enjoyable. I felt it suited me to work through my portfolio slowly, deciding exactly what to put in and where to put it." Erin Dougherty
