Design & Bind Your Own Creative Portfolio


I always feel I can achieve what is taught in small, actionable steps without feeling overwhelmed ( and I usually spend most of my waking day feeling overwhelmed :) )

Bonnie Christine's tutorials are always helpful and easy to follow.


Hi Bonnie, thank you for this class. I want you to know that you truly inspire me to start working on my dream again.


I’ll also be sharing with you several examples of portfolios from creatives of all kinds! You’ll leave the course feeling inspired, motivated and prepared to hit the ground running with your beautiful portfolio.
