Chloe Greenberg started the Art of Portfolio Curation with a strong passion for surface pattern design, but lacked an understanding of how to best target the audience she wanted to capture the attention of. She dreamed of landing an internship at a major print studio in London, but she was currently living in Vancouver, Canada. With the distance and no clarity for how to go about the process, she doubted that she could ever make this dream come true.
It should be noted that Chloe is no newbie to the design world. Previously, she spent six years working as a graphic designer in the food, education, event, fashion, and travel industries. She joined the Textile Design Lab and began taking courses to expand her textile design education, while also taking a short course at Central Saint Martins in London.
After dedicating a few months to the programs at the Textile Design Lab, including the Art of Portfolio Curation, Chloe was prepared to reach out for the internships she wanted. “As a result, I am now living in London, England, and started my first internship at Amanda Kelly Design Studio.”
What makes Chloe’s journey more exciting is that she actually landed not one, but three internships in London—all while still living in Vancouver, Canada. That’s right! Chloe made her dream come true…and in a big way.
While working through the Art of Portfolio Curation, Chloe was able to “visualize clearly what I was missing from my portfolio and where I needed to fill gaps to ensure I was employed by the best fit for me”.
