Handing someone a well-designed business card that’s clever, even humorous, is a great way to promote yourself. But handing someone a giant poster and asking them to slice it up into 100 cards to create a flip-book animation? That all but guarantees you a spot on the unemployment line.
It’s not that we don’t think designer Silvio Teixeira’s 100 IDS project isn’t original, or even kind of clever. It’s just that he’s asking a lot for someone to take the time to slice up this poster and assemble it into a flip-book. If he’s using it to job hunt, we sincerely doubt any potential employer is going to take the time to do this. At least not when there’s a stack of other portfolios and resumes on their desk that require far less effort to peruse.
