About the Event
Students: Get Your Portfolio Reviewed By A Pro
The One Club For Creativity Denver and AIGA Colorado have teamed up to help Colorado and surrounding area college art students make it in the professional world by hosting the annual event, The Review, where students get invaluable feedback on their portfolio as it is reviewed by up to five creative professionals and compete for scholarships and prizes.
Students present their work to local agency designers, business owners and artists in one-on-one sessions, similar to an interview. The professionals give feedback on the students work, how they can improve and advice on how to present their work to land their dream job.
Scholarships and prizes are awarded to the best portfolios.
Join us for a lunch panel discussion on how to land your first job and what to expect during a job hunt with One Club Denver Chapter President and Managing Director of FBI Talent Co, Kara Taylor, Andrew Lincoln, Creative Consultant and Creative Director and Wallis Osborn, Creative at Otter Products. Stay tuned as more panelist will be announced. Food and beverages provided.
