Some portfolios go to extreme lengths to impress. Graphic Designer, Hayley Aroha, has raised the bar again.

Hayley Aroha’s unique shoebox-like portfolio contains plenty of goodies, a quirky CV and a business card. She mails the box to potential employers in the hopes of impressing them with her minimalist design.

"The goal was for it to be memorable, personal, innovative, unique, quirky, and to express me as a designer and a person."

The clean light brown and white colour scheme create an upcycling quality, and with the pen actually made from recycled goods, Hayley's portfolio isn't just pleasing to the eye, but also environmentally thoughtful.
