Portfolio Requirements

NOTE: This is a summary of portfolio requirements. You must download complete portfolio requirements and instructions from the FIT Admissions Office in order to complete and submit your portfolio.

Portfolio submissions for Interior Design consist of: a design test, a portfolio of original work, written essays, and a portfolio cover page. We want to understand your creative process in both written and visual components.

PART ONE: Design Test

The Design Test is a very important part of the total portfolio evaluation. We request that you put thought and effort into the concept, design, and execution of these projects. As an interior design applicant, you will be required to submit a floor plan, a three-dimensional model of a space, a furniture sketch, and a functional object design.

PART TWO: Your Original Artwork

Your portfolio will be evaluated by Interior Design faculty who will be looking for: a sense of design; imagination and creativity; freehand drawing, sketching, visualization ability; sensitivity to color, line, proportion, texture and materials; analysis of form; diversity of interest in related arts, crafts or technology (examples: sculpture, graphics, ceramics, textile design, photography, computer graphics, etc.), and organization and neatness of portfolio presentation.

PART THREE: Written Essays

You will be required to provide a series of short essays (250 words or less). Please respond thoughtfully and note that your answers do not replace the essay/academic history that you are required to submit as part of your FIT/SUNY application.
