Editorial Review & Assistance

“Working with Harold on my portfolio has truly been such a privilege. He effectively and humbly communicates his expertise and insight throughout the design process, successfully revealing what makes a good portfolio, and how to practically reach your potential. He has perfected the art of teaching design, being able to clearly identify short-comings, yet simultaneously provide constructive advice, without discouraging you, or restricting your individual creativity. The improvement to my portfolio and my understanding of its purposes have dramatically increased, enabling me to receive offers from graduate schools I applied to. And above all, his kind and generous support makes the stressful process of developing your portfolio so much more enjoyable!”

— Laura-Anne Wong
