Before you start applying to jobs get a gut-check from experienced creative professionals at Portfolio 1-on-1. This design-centric conference will give you the opportunity to present your work in mock interviews for constructive feedback and valuable connections. You’ll also have the opportunity to tour agencies and studios, hear from panelists and speakers, and network with other students.

The Portfolio 1-on-1 student conference has become the premier regional event for putting developing design students and their books in front of experienced creative professionals for intensive reviews, constructive conversations, and valuable connections. Check out photos from previous years (20172016, 20152014, 20132012) to get a feel for what Portfolio 1-on-1 is all about. Email [email protected] with questions.
