Help Me: Art School Portfolio (Graphic Design)
So the whole art school thing can be pretty intimidating...and confusing.
So, I'm looking into a few art schools (next year will be my Senior year of high school). The portfolio requirements range from simple to somewhat hard to understand. I've contacted several colleges and such for more information, but I am still freaking out. I've played around with a few things. My experiences include being the designer editor and concept editor for our school yearbook and newspaper. I love graphic design and want very badly to go to art school but the portfolio scares me. Should I be nervous or just "do it to it"?
Also, when they ask to "demonstrate typography" they don't mean they want a body copy of a font I designed...do they? Or do they just want me to demonstrate, in some way, that I know how the hell to use fonts properly--like if it matches the message, etc. What fonts go well together and what not.
Sorry if I sound naive about it all, but I'd really like some help!
