Join us for the largest and what is considered the most well-respected portfolio review on the West Coast! Whether you’re entering the job market for the first time, transitioning in your career, or just want some sage advice, our reviewers are there for you to provide essential feedback. If you’re in the early stages of putting your portfolio or just polishing it up, this is the perfect opportunity to speak to the experts about how to put your best foot forward.

All attendees receive valuable one-on-one feedback on portfolio work and career goals from 3 top Bay Area Designers (15 minutes each).

Who Should Attend

Portfolio Day is open to students, emerging designers, those returning to the profession, those changing career paths, and anyone looking for guidance and feedback. Reviews are geared towards communications design, UX/UI, and product design—please no illustrators, architects, and industrial designers.

How to Prepare

Please bring your portfolio in electronic (laptop or tablet) or book form. Please make sure your laptop or tablet is fully charged as there are a limited number of available outlets.

Make sure your portfolio is downloaded onto your laptop or tablet as WiFi is not reliable.
