It is becoming increasingly difficult to promote oneself as a design artist. Tangible, printed portfolios, once the only way to share design work with prospective employers, are being substituted in the digital age by interactive digital online portfolios. This is even more so the case for theatrical projection and media designers whose work exists in a digital format that includes video with sound. We are in the midst of a new era; one in which directors and producers access multimedia portfolios from the comfort of their own home without the presence of a designer. It is now much more important for a digital portfolio to represent the character, abilities, sensibilities, and aesthetic of the designer. Too often our online presence is misrepresentative of our work and of our abilities. It is this problem which will be tackled: how to represent oneself as a media and projections designer in the theatre through an interactive digital online portfolio. Research into past and currently existing digital online presences will provide a foundation on which to synthesize and construct, as well as providing a basis for comparison. Prospect for future development will also be given consideration.
