AIGA Pittsburgh has postponed this event for precautionary reasons to limit any dangers posed to our community by the spread of the coronavirus. We are working towards rescheduling the Portfolio Review in April, with the possibility of moving to digital platforms. All attendees will be notified as soon as possible regarding a rescheduled event.
We ask you to hold off on requesting a refund until plans are announced for the possible April event. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any direct questions.
AIGA Pittsburgh's annual Portfolio Day returns!
AIGA Pittsburgh will be giving students and young professionals the opportunity to present a sampling of their portfolios and their resume, polish their interviewing skills, and receive constructive feedback from some of Pittsburgh's top design professionals. Portfolio Day is open to all junior and senior/advanced design students and recent graduates from any design discipline.
Participants are encouraged to bring finished portfolios or in-progress work that will benefit from professional feedback prior to finalizing a portfolio.
During registration, you will respond to a brief survey that will help us pair you with the best reviewers for your expertise and interests. After registration, you may be contacted via email to confirm registration details and event times.
This event is divided into a morning session and an afternoon session. Each ticket purchased is only valid for one session. Please sign up for only one session to allow room for all participants. If there is room for participants to sign up for multiple sessions, we will send out an email closer to the date of the event. A light breakfast, lunch, and water will be provided to all attendees. Participants should plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of session they are attending.
