The brochure/logo/stationary for some corner office could be in the economy range while works for said Manhattan Ad Agency could be the million dollar ranges.

Another question i just started to look for work again so its been awhile... Do i have awebsite eportfolio is that enough or do i still need a print portfolio as well?

My son is in a film school now and they cover the topic of portfolios often. It's not something some consider important but let's say you had 2 candidates. One came with and the other without. Who wins?

i was told in school that a online portfolio was enough and i was asked to bring in a book for the interview. But for others interviews i had to send a link to my online stuff. But you are right i will have a book as well thanks

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
