2011 Albany Student Portfolio Review
Thursday, April 7, 2011 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
3rd Annual AIGA UPSTNY Student Portfolio Review
April 7th, 2011 :: 6–10PM
The Upstate New York Chapter of the AIGA invites the 2011 graduating graphic design students of New York to our 3rd Annual Student Portfolio Review.
Due to space constraints and the number of students who have registered in the past, we will probably assign every student a 2-hour time slot, either 6–8pm, or 8–10pm. Details TBD.
The review is a chance for you to practice your interview skills and get valuable feedback from local professionals about your design work and resume in a no-risk, non-competitive environment geared at preparing you for the professional interviewing process.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
You will receive objective advice and thoughtful one-on-one commentary and criticism of your design work from local design educators, professional designers, and potential employers. While this event is not a job fair, some reviewers may be looking for potential employees or interns. This event is a great way to discuss your work, network and become aware of who's who in your local design community.
WHO CAN ATTEND:
Students: The review is open to college seniors, 2010 graduates, and MFA candidates (maximum capacity of 50 students)
Reviewers: The review is open to local art and design professionals and educators.
AIGA Student members: $5
Student non-members: $10
Free for reviewers
WHAT TO BRING:
Bring 12-15 pieces of your best work from your portfolio, as well as multiple copies of your resume and business cards. If you plan on showing interactive or rich-media work, please bring a fully-charged laptop and extension cord. Unfortunately, the Crossings does not offer WiFi at the current time.
