While interviewing, I used an illustrated case study (pics of
deliverables, diagrams, and screens) to answer that crazy question:
"tell me a little bit about your process".

It was an illustrated walkthrough, plus the text of the case study
acted like notes, so I didn't forget anything important.

I think case studies are very important, and every item in a portfolio
actsv as a case study. The only questions, is how effective a study is
