Get up bright and early for our upcoming 2020 AIGA LA Virtual Portfolio Day on Saturday, May 16th. We’re hosting a virtual portfolio review from 9AM to 1PM, with some of Los Angeles’ industry-leading professionals. Be ready to network during breakout rooms, gain invaluable feedback, and listen to experts discuss entrepreneurship, collaboration, and wellness. 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.
WHO IT’S FOR
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.
WHAT TO HAVE READY
For this online 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. Be prepared to share your screen during the Zoom call, make sure your desktop is clean and have a browser with your portfolio website open or a PDF open and ready to share. Also be camera-ready: have a virtual or tidy background that is not distracting.
A Zoom link will be sent to you a couple of days prior to the event date.
Note: We aim to have our Portfolio Day event be accessible to the design community as much as possible and will still provide a review over the phone for those who may not have access to a computer or the internet.
Review Session is from: 9AM – 1PM
Members: FREE (with $20 deposit)
Registration is required to hold your space for the event. For AIGA members, this deposit will be refunded to you after the online session ends. For non-AIGA members, you may apply your deposit towards an AIGA membership should you choose.
