Question: Do you/should you clarify work in your design portfolio as "student" or "assignment" vs. client or personal work? (via @AiJahya)
@AiJahya I never have. I'll label personally started projects, but more for organization than anything. If it's mine, it's mine.
Thanks for the responses everyone! I never did specify unless asked. I hope this helps anyone still in school!
i think so!sometimes,assignment requests are ... far from what the starting point was ;-) #diplomatic
@AiJahya I believe you should, but the opportunity to talk about your process and solution remains. That's the most important part.
@aijahya I don't specify. If the person viewing it really wants to know, they'll usually ask.
explaining the intended target market and reasoning behind the design choices are more important than categorizing the project
I disclose when the work is something I worked on with others and what my role was.
@aijahya I never mentioned whether my work was for school, personal, or otherwise. I just let people ask if they want to.

I don't think so. If the ideas are good and the work is solid, I don't think it should matter.
Of course! It should be very clear from your process description, anyway. (Because your portfolio documents process, right?) :)
Not recommended. Your work is your work, but if it belongs to someone you should say so, eg client name. cc:
