2015 AIGA Raleigh Student Portfolio Review

AIGA Raleigh is happy to announce that the 2015 AIGA Raleigh Student Portfolio Review is scheduled to be held on Saturday, March 28th at Red Hat in downtown Raleigh.

All tickets must be purchased online. There will be no tickets/admission at the door. Tickets are limited and registration ends on 3/20/15 at 11:30 pm! 

The AIGA Raleigh Student Portfolio Review is an event established for senior, undergraduate level students that are beginning their transformation as emerging designers. As a participant, you will receive a constructive, one-on-one evaluation of your work from a variety of design professionals located in the Triangle area.

Consider the Student Portfolio Review to be your call-to-action: to receive broader feedback and critique from fresh experienced 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.
