Portfolio Day 2015

We’ll be adding more reviewers over the next few weeks, check back soon for updates!

The San Francisco chapter of AIGA invites you to Portfolio Day. Known as the best portfolio review on the West Coast, this is an opportunity to get valuable one-on-one feedback on your portfolio and career goals from some of the Bay Area’s best designers. Over 100 top Bay Area designers will serve as reviewers.

This event is open to students, emerging designers, those who are returning to the profession after some time off, changing career paths or anyone looking for guidance and feedback.

You will receive multiple reviews throughout the day from experts in the field spanning a range of disciplines. Practice your one-on-one interviewing skills with design professionals and receive valuable feedback on your portfolio.

You may bring your portfolio in book form, or load your images on a laptop and bring that with you. There will be wifi available.
