WPA-BFA-AGRD-Dimensional and Spatial Design Portfolio


The goal of this project is to asses the stu­den­t’s per­for­mance and poten­tial in the graphic design field.


The objec­tive of this assign­ment is to pro­vide an assess­ment of the stu­den­t’s port­fo­lio and efforts as part of the Uni­ver­si­ty’s Whole Per­son Assess­ment Pro­gram using the WPA-AGRD-Motion Design Port­fo­lio rubric.

Background Reading


Using com­ments and sug­ges­tions for pre­vi­ous eval­u­a­tions and class­room cri­tiques, revise and turn in course assign­ments. This process should be done well before the final dead­line for the review. Often, the best time to revise a project is imme­di­ately after the review. Con­sider the craft nec­es­sary to main­tain a pro­fes­sional level of pro­duc­tion. Doc­u­ment your progress through brain­storm­ing, sketches and revi­sions, both phys­i­cal and digital.

Part One

Please sub­mit images, PDF’s, videos, mod­els or links etc. (as per­ti­nant) of the fol­low­ing applic­a­ble projects to your hosted web­site and to the appro­pri­ate D2L project drop­box for review:

  • Assign­ment 01.02: Vir­tual 3D Packaging
  • Assign­ment 02.04: Phys­i­cal 3D Packaging
  • Assign­ment 03: Design for Addi­tive Production
  • Assign­ment 04: Design for Sub­trac­tive Production
  • Assign­ment 05.00: Vir­tual Envi­ron­men­tal Graphics
  • Assign­ment 06.00: Phys­i­cal Envi­ron­men­tal Graphics
  • Dimen­sional projects com­pleted out­side of course require­ments, includ­ing t‑shirts, bags, pack­ag­ing, AR, VR or 3D mod­els from gam­ing envi­ron­ments or film production

Make a post for each project on your port­fo­lio site. Doc­u­ment each project with a short descrip­tion of details regard­ing the project para­me­ters: date, size, media, project objec­tive etc. Use all nec­es­sary tools to rep­re­sent the work appro­pri­ately, includ­ing video or 3D view­ers, etc. Screen­shot, cre­ate and crop project images to ensure that mul­ti­ple details and sub­tle aspects are pre­served. Some use of stag­ing tem­plates is accept­able, but they should not take the pri­or­ity from the analy­sis of your work.

Part Two

Nav­i­gate to your site’s cat­e­gory or tag for the dimen­sional based projects and take a screen shot. Upload the it to the appro­pri­ate D2L drop­box and cre­ate a click­able, direct link to the page in the com­ments section.

To take a screen-shot:

  • Com­mand-Shift-4-Space­bar: Takes a screen­shot of the win­dow, and saves it as a file on the desk­top. The file will have a .png extension.
  • Com­mand-Shift‑3: Takes a screen­shot of the entire screen, and saves it as a file on the desk­top. The file will have a .png extension.
  • Instead of using the key­board short­cuts above, screen­shots can be taken by using the Screen­shot appli­ca­tion included with Mac OS X. It is located at /Applications/Utilities/Screenshot or by search­ing via Spot­light in the upper right of the Mac screen.
