Paper Company Launches Graphic Designer Resource Site
Dayton Ohio coated and carbonless paper maker NewPage, as part of it's name change promotion from MeadWestvaco to Newpage, has launched The True You, a portfolio collection site where designers can submit work, glean advice from other professionals and enter contests.
Professional advice comes from industry leaders as Linda Cooper Bowen, author of Marketing and the True You, Hank Richardson, who tackles The Ubiquitous Portfolio, and Olivia Fox Cabane, who discusses Networking Basics. Cooper Bowen also offers a Q&A session where graphic designers can ask a question on any marketing issue.
According to the press release, "Current contests include personal makeovers for five lucky designers who can shuck their scruffy wardrobes and plunge into the world of chic to match their snappy new portfolios, and an opportunity for one winner to promote themselves or their clients by designing a truck that will be featured at an upcoming race in the NASCAR truck series.
