The GTCC Advertising & Graphic Design department will be holding their annual Portfolio Day event, showing off the work of their 2016 graduates on Wednesday, July 20th, 9am-6pm, hosted by Revolution Mill in Greensboro. This is a yearly opportunity to see the work of several dozen graduating design students as they begin their professional careers. If you’re looking to hire, seeking an intern, or just simply want to see what the students are up to, we invite you to this free event! Help us support the newest additions to our field, and give back to the design community!
As part of this event, we will be providing an informal Portfolio Review for these students during which you, our local design professionals, will have the opportunity to sit down with a student and look through their work with them, giving them feedback, critique and advice. These are low-pressure friendly discussions providing the students with much-needed feedback from multiple professionals to help them as they shape their portfolios and figure out their future plans!
We’re asking YOU, our members, if you’d be willing to participate in this process! We hope you’ll attend their portfolio day event, even if you’re unable to sit down for reviews, but if you are able, we’d love it if you’d talk with the students, be it just one review, or a dozen!
When you arrive at the Portfolio Day event, you’ll be checked in at a front table and at this point, you can let the attendant know that you’re willing to help with the reviews, in which case they’ll thank you profusely, then instruct you where to go and then send the next student to you. It’s that simple! No stress! We’re thankful for however much time you’re able to commit!
The event runs 9am-6pm, so arrive at your convenience, check out the work, then do some reviewing!
Don’t forget, we also have the first of our Designer as Entrepreneur series speaker events taking place that same evening in the same space as Portfolio Day. Stick around, have some refreshments and hear from local design luminaries as we explore the behind-the-scenes process of building a successful design business and the pitfalls to be avoided! Not to mention taking a tour of the incredible Revolution Mill complex!
This is a free event, but we ask that you please RSVP through Eventbrite so we can plan accordingly!
