Business Portfolio

New Brunswick



In this module, you are going to design and create several publications and materials typical to setting up a small business (such as a business card). You won't actually start the business (though you could use what you create if you wanted to try).

Your business will likely be in the service or retail industry, but other types of businesses are possible. You will make several decisions about your business such as its name, the type of business, location and more.

You should select a business which will lend itself to this project. It should be something straightforward (e.g. a T-shirt stand, hotdog cart, driveway refinishing). The more fun or creative your idea, the easier and more enjoyable you will find this project. Keep your idea simple and the project will be easier.
