Your portfolio is the visual representation of you as a designer — the culmination of the work you've done, the work you hope to get, and the work you love doing. It's time to put these pieces on display and receive the critique and constructive feedback you need to take your work to the next level. Becca Reitz, an illustrator and Creative Director who's been in the field for 7+ years, will be conducting your review. She has landed a number of her dream clients + projects and is eager to help you navigate and craft your portfolio to land the work you find most rewarding.
Portfolios are not a one-size-fits-all category. Whether it's a website, Instagram page, or Behance profile — the digital landscape today makes the presentation of our work much more flexible. Different clients are looking in different spaces. Bring whatever form of your portfolio best displays your work.
This is a chance to receive both a one-on-one evaluation of your work from a design professional while also connecting with other designers in the community about your portfolio, the leads you're hoping to snag, and the human reality of being a designer in the current landscape.
**Note: Even if you are looking to build a portfolio, are a student, or are early in your career—bring pieces you're hoping to create a portfolio with and we'll direct you regardless. You don't have to be far along to receive feedback!
Tips for the review:
• Please prepare a digital version of your portfolio that can be shared with ease. (Feel free to present a website, proposal, Instagram page, Behance profile — whatever you feel best showcases your work)
• Be prepared to chat through a few pieces, you will have a ~10min slot with the reviewer.
• Prompts for additional feedback with other participants will be provided if you are looking for further critique.
This event will be held at Nurture
