AIGA Reno/Tahoe presents the second annual BIG AWESOME STUDENT PORTFOLIO DAY.
This event offers you the chance to evaluate and critique the advertising, design and journalism students of northern Nevada. They’ve spent hours pixel-pushing, kerning and memorizing every PMS color’s RGB value and are finally ready for honest feedback and insight into what it takes to make it and maybe, land that summer intern position you have open. This is an invaluable opportunity for students and professionals alike. AIGA will even make sure you are well hydrated and fed. You might even consider being on the Q&A panel. If you are interested in putting in your two-cents, please email email@example.com
Students wanting to show off their hard-earned graduating portfolios, please register for the event. In addition to individual space to display and discuss your printed and digital work, a looping audio/visual presentation will showcase your best work, along with your contact information.
Confused on what to bring? Show up prepared. You can display your printed work, we suggest you mount the pieces or lay them out in a book. Some students use iPads or laptops to display websites, e-blasts or any digital work. Business cards are a must.
After registering, email four to five digital samples of your best work by May 21, in RGB JPG, PDF or QT format to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please provide your name, phone number, email address, and location of the school you attend.
Professionals: Free to attend and critique
Students: $10 (table and space fee)
