WHAT IS A BRAG BOOK
A brag book is a collection of graphic elements, like pictures and embellishments, thoughtfully placed together to build the best story about those things you love the most. Traditionally brag books are used by professionals in job interviews to best position themselves as the best candidate for the job. Nowadays, the trend is becoming more and more popular to showcase anything you want to brag about to your family, friends and coworkers – or even perfect strangers!
