I read this article this morning and couldn't agree more, so thought I'd share with the community.
I receive a lot of applications from designers in Tokyo who are making the same mistake, which is a real pity.
My advice is to say as much as you can about your skills through your portfolio. And I don't mean just through images, but with accompanying explanations of your process, tools used, outcomes and learning for each piece. With the right content, you may not even need to include a CV at all to get the job!
Would be interested to hear others' thoughts on this. :)
