Featurethis: Applicable Graphics

Posted on September 17, 2007 Under Design

On any given day, I’ll look at fifteen, twenty porfolios of graphic designers and artists, not counting the ones I close down immediately because of overly-annoying flash, obnoxious music or plainly horrific layouts. After six months of this being a daily ritual, it’s turned me into a bit of a portfolio snot, in turn making it pretty hard to really impress me. This wasn’t the case at all when I clicked through to FeatureThis, the sexy portfolio of a rather politely-worded Los Angelian named Eric. From the low-key but totally effective layout displaying his forays into branding, photography, packaging and web design to his Film+Motion set to a swingin’ big-band soundtrack, I couldn’t stop clicking around for a good half hour. Who knew pesticides, fly traps and nursing pads could be so visually intriguing?
