Emerging Professionals Workshop 2023

Calling all students and emerging pros!

Join us for this year’s Emerging Professionals Workshop on March 25th for a full-day of discovery, portfolio reviews, networking, and more!

We're starting off the day with a workshop on interactive design, followed by a presentation into the design process of well-established professionals. A selection of industry leaders will share a case study presentation, their insight, knowledge, and design process.

After lunch, we will have the portfolio reviews; you will sit with three experienced creatives for 25-minute one-on-one sessions to review your work and help you hone your presentation skills. Come prepared with your work in print, or on your own laptop or tablet. Student attendees have been hired by reviewers in the past, so bring your best self! We suggest you bring 5-10 pieces of work as a PDF.

End the day with an opportunity to network. Come prepare with business cards and start building a professional network.
