2020 AIGA LA Portfolio Day

Are you close to graduation or new to the industry or consider yourself a non-traditional designer looking for pointers on how to present your best work and take it to the next level? If so, join AIGA LA at the the Herman Miller Showroom in Culver City for our annual Portfolio Day.

This is your chance to meet with design studios, academics, and industry professionals from throughout Southern California. Spend the day networking, discussing your work, gaining invaluable feedback, and listening to experts discussing entrepreneurship, collaboration, and wellness.

Throughout the day, you’ll connect with experts in design, strategy, social action, film, motion graphics, user experience, digital design, and more. You will walk away with tips on landing, preparing for, and nailing those interviews, as well as learn more about what it takes to be a creative professional while maintaining your sanity. Remember, this isn’t a competition, but rather a celebration of design education and the work you have already put in to reach your goal as a professional designer.

AIGA LA’s Portfolio Day is open to any designer looking for pointers on their presentation and interviewing skills. Most participants are new and emerging designers seeking feedback and tips on refining portfolios and work that may still be in progress. Our goal is to do our best to help young designers prepare to successfully enter into new careers.

For this event, your portfolio should include your best work and work that you're still looking to refine. You’ll hear many different opinions from many different industry leaders. The goal is to help you, develop you, and to guide you towards your goals. If you are showing online work, be prepared with PDF or stand alone digital files (internet connection issues can happen). PLUS make sure your laptops or tablets are fully charged.
