The AIGA Raleigh Student Portfolio Review is an event established for senior, undergraduate level students that are beginning their transformation into emerging designers. As a student attendee, you will receive a constructive, group evaluation of your work from a variety of design professionals and fellow design students located in the Triangle area. Each student will participate in a group evaluation of their work, presenting to up to a total of three students and four reviewers. A minimum of twenty minutes will be dedicated to each student’s presentation and discussion.

Students, consider the Student Portfolio Review to be your call-to-action: to receive broader feedback and critique from new perspectives and fresh eyes. While this event is not a job fair, some reviewers may be looking for potential employees or interns. This is a great way to network and become aware of who’s who in the Triangle design community.

Participation in the Portfolio Review allows you to:

  • Meet fellow design students in the Triangle as well as experienced design professionals
  • Gain a greater understanding of your strengths and areas of improvement as a designer
  • Showcase your design portfolio and practicing the presentation of your work
  • Experience feedback and constructive criticism from additional perspectives
  • Build lasting and enriching relationships with soon-to-be design colleagues
  • Open doors of opportunity and discover a potentially new design avenue for your career
  • Pose questions to design industry professionals and have them directly answered
  • Study the methods, communication and techniques of design experts
