Follow-Up: My Interview Kit

…view (and the cost factor), I decided to go the CD route for my digital portfolio and ended up buying some labels and disc jackets for one district (with more people).

I created a sweet, easily decyphered infograpic via infogr.am – a free, easily customizable, infogram maker. It won’t let you go too nuts, but is great for presenting data in a new way.
