Before you start inserting text and images, plan out what you want to include in your portfolio. This could range from a cover page, table of contents, resume, to different sections showcasing various types of work (e.g., writing samples, designs, etc.)
1. Cover Page: A cover page could include your name, what you do, and perhaps a small image or logo.
2. Table of Contents: Since a portfolio can be extensive, a table of contents can help the reader navigate easily.
3. Resume/CV: Include a resume or CV to provide the reader with some background information about you.
4. Work Sections: Divide your portfolio into sections depending on what you want to showcase (e.g., Writing, Graphic Design, Photography, etc.)
