Congratulations on starting the CLD process! There is some work ahead of you, but it is completely worth it. The CLD portfolio was the toughest part of the process for me, largely because I didn’t know where to start. With some insight from the designer sector group and a template provided by a star colleague of mine Sabrina Goettler, I completed the submission and achieved my CLD designation. Before you get started on your portfolio, have a look at mine as a sample. I hope you find it helpful as you work towards your certification. — Jen Cuddie
