AIGA Cleveland’s 1st Digital Student Portfolio Review (BETA TEST)

We are excited to pivot and move forward in testing our first ever virtual Student Portfolio Review. This online gathering provides students the opportunity to meet, connect, and grow through shared advice and constructive feedback from industry professionals.

Because this is a beta version, we are keeping the number of participants low.
10 students and 10 professionals. Registration is LIMITED and FREE for both students and professionals. 

The portfolio review will be conducted via Zoom.
We request that all attendees (student and professionals) download the Zoom desktop application prior to the event date to ensure the best quality experience. All student designers will be sharing their portfolios digitally through Zoom with the professionals.

Think of this as a professional interview and prepare for it accordingly. Consider how your work should be presented and shared as well as your attire and background setting you will be presenting from. Lastly, be sure to do the following:

• Have your website or PDF portfolio set up and ready to share.
• Mute all desktop notifications.
• Make sure that your laptop is fully charged and/or connected to a power outlet.

We encourage you to be honest and constructive in critiquing the students' work. Feel free also to share advice in starting and navigating one's creative career.
