AIGA Student portfolio review

Ever wondered about your portfolio?

Does it define who you are (or want to be) as a designer? Does it make you stand out in the crowd? Can you present your work in a thoughtful manner, using your design vocabulary, sharing your process and what you have learned from it?

On April 24th AIGA Boston holds the annual student portfolio review.
During this day-long event, graduating seniors and graduate-level students meet with design professionals to receive feedback on their portfolios. Students benefit from the opportunity to practice their interview and presentation skills in a non-competitive environment.
