<p>I've searched around, but I couldn't seem to find the answer to to this question:</p>
<p>Anyway, I have been involved with graphic design for 6 years and I had some work I wanted to submit to Yale. (I had written my activities short answer and Yale Supplement essay on my experiences with graphic design) I created a portfolio on InDesign (publishing software) and I wanted to send it to Yale on a pdf file. However this is not a file that the online submission page would accept.</p>
<p>I feel like the layout of the portfolio really showcases my style so I really don't want to lose it. I know I could send a hard copy to the admission office. If I send a hard copy to their office, should I limit it to a 10 page portfolio or could I have a 15 page portfolio that shows ten of my works? (the other pages being a cover page, table of contents, header page, etc.)</p>
<p>I guess the bigger question is this. The pieces I plan to submit are not conventional drawings/paintings/etc, instead they are book design/layouts, logo designs, and posters. Should I even bother sending them?</p>
<p>Okay, so to sum it up:
- I want to send an actual book portfolio of my works, but Yale doesn't allow pdfs. Can I send a hard copy of my book to them?
- My artwork consists of book design/layouts, logos, and posters (so like commerical graphic design). Is Yale looking for more conventional works like paintings, drawings, photography, etc?</p>
<p>Sorry if this is confusing! It's been a couple of long days for me.</p>
