Big Awesome Student Portfolio Day

AIGA Reno/Tahoe presents the fourth annual:


Portfolio day is a chance for you to practice your presentation skills and get valuable feedback from local professionals about your design work and resume in a no-risk environment geared at preparing you for the professional portfolio presentation process.

All students will have the opportunity participate in portfolio reviews with design professionals, a roundtable on how to improve your resume, a Q&A roundtable with industry experts, and receive a professional head shot.
