What is a portfolio review?
It is an optional opportunity to show and discuss your portfolio — as a presentation tool, as a narrative device, as a graphic document, as a cohesive compilation of works — with designers that have all gone through the process of compiling their own bodies of work and presenting them in various forms.

What should I expect?
You will meet with a practicing graphic designer and show your work-in-progress portfolio. Reviewers can offer editorial, technical and visual advice on your academic portfolios. They will not advise on how to get a job or what an employer is looking for. Our concern is to help you conceptually and visually think through the task of presenting ideas.

How much time will I have?
Each student will have about 15 minutes to briefly present their WIP layouts and receive feedback.

What should I bring?
Bring printouts or PDFs of your WIP portfolios (as well as relevant reference materials if you wish). The more you bring, the more help/feedback you will receive.

When should I show up?
You will choose to meet on Saturday or Sunday (Feb 10 or 11) at Ware Lounge (600). Please be on time. If you don’t show up at your given time, you will forfeit your slot.

Organized by Yoonjai Choi, Adjunct Assistant Professor at GSAPP and Partner at the New York-based studio Common Name.
