r:evolve 2018 BGSUGD & AIGA TOL Portfolio Review

AIGA BGSU Student Portfolio Review Day

AIGA Toledo, the BGSU Division of Graphic Design (BGSUGD) and the AIGA BGSU Student Group are proud to announce r:evolve: the 11th Annual Portfolio Review Day!

Modeled after our previous successful Portfolio Review Days, we have once again planned an exciting event! In addition to the review, BGSUGD will be hosting the first-ever alumni and friends fundraising dinner!

Special guest and BGSUGD alum Rick Valicenti will be giving a keynote talk, as well as serving as a portfolio reviewer for the day. Valicenti is the founder of Thirst, a Chicago-based design studio that creates for the human condition through creative investigation and experimentation. His work has been featured in galleries internationally, and Thirst’s work is part of the permanent collection in the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum. 

We are seeking approximately 25 design professionals/educators to act as portfolio reviewers. For some of you, we are asking for your time once again, for others, perhaps it’s your first time. Either way, if you have the professional design experience, and you’re willing to give us part of your Saturday to review student portfolios, we’ll treat you like royalty! And, you’ll have the unending gratitude of our student participants. Sign up here to review!


BGSU students attending the R:evolve Portfolio Review Day will register at the Fine Arts Center’s main office with Jane Steinart. They will pay $15 dollars using their BG1 card. (Please note, this is the only form of payment accepted for BGSU students.) Please register by April 12th, 2018.

Students from other schools attending the R:evolve Portfolio Review Day will register and give payment the day of the event. The only payment accepted will be a check made out to BGSU with Graphic Design written in the memo line.

BGSU GD Division looks forward to seeing you there!
