Graphic Design Senior Reviews

Mandatory portfolio review on Friday, December 6th

This review should be approached as if it were a job interview. For example, a link to your web portfolio should be provided a few days prior to the interview allowing someone to review your work in order to gather questions and observations. In the interview a printed portfolio will be used to assess how you talk about and justify your work. From the way you dress to the materials you bring please prepare as if your dream job were on the line. Below are a few requirements to help guide you in your preparation.
