RAW :: AIGA Toledo and BGSUGD 8th Annual Portfolio Review Day with special guest speaker Kelli Anderson.
Natural and undisguised, it is time to show who you really are. AIGA Toledo, the BGSU Division of Graphic Design (BGSUGD) and the AIGA BGSU Student Group are proud to announce RAW, the 8th Annual Portfolio Review Day! You’ve worked hard to prove yourself over years. Now is the time to bring proof for evaluation and feedback. Over 20 graphic designers and design professionals from across the Northwest Ohio region will be on hand, ready to review your work.
This year’s student portfolio review sessions will be held Saturday, April 11th at Hanson Inc. in Maumee, Ohio. Modeled after our previous successful Portfolio Review Day’s, we have once again planned an exciting all-day event, but with a new format. Beginning with open registration / check-in starting promptly at 8:30am, a formal review period from 9:30am – 12:30pm, lunch, keynote speaker Kelli Anderson followed by mini talks on salary tips, what freelancing entails and Q&A panel discussion with recent graduates.
Our special guest speaker, Kelli Anderson, is an artist, designer, and tinkerer who is obsessed with the mechanics of visual things. In her work, she tries to find surprising possibilities hidden in ordinary experiences.
Both undergraduate and graduate graphic design students at all levels are invited to participate in the Review Day (recent graduates as well!). Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity to receive direct, one-on-one feedback, including an opportunity to be reviewed by Kelli!
