In the process of producing my printed portfolio, I decided I would need to design a carrying case for it. This case would have to hold and protect two fairly heavy books (my portfolio and workbook), stay true to the style, and also draw a lot of attention and wow my audience once opened.
I began with sketches and Google Sketch-Up to design the box and the needed parts based around the two books:001-portfoliobox2002-Portfolio Box-sketchup

Once visualized, I went into production:
004-Portfolio Box parts
005-Portfolio Box-013

And here is the final product:

007-Portfolio Box-complete back
