Creative Review is April 30!

AIGA DC Creative Review is back April 30, 2022! Join us virtually to learn how the creative industry is adapting to remote/hybrid work environments and have a one-on-one portfolio review session with seasoned design professionals from the DMV area. Whether you’re a design student wondering what it’s like to work in a creative field or a practicing designer looking for feedback on your work, this event will prepare you  for your next opportunity.

The day will kick off at 9:30 AM with a panel of local design leaders who will share their experience navigating the design field and adapting to the new remote work environment, followed by a Q&A session where you can have your most burning career questions answered. Portfolio reviews will start at 10:30 AM. When you’re not in a review session, hang out and get to know fellow creative professionals in our community.

This year, we are lucky to have portfolio reviewers coming from these organizations: Adfero, AHIP, Artemis Ward, Capital One, DAI, Discovery, Education Development Center (EDC), FINRA, George Washington University, Gunnison Consulting Group, Inc., HAWJ Studio, Library of Congress, Optoro, Promontory, Taco Bell, The Washington Post, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, and Wide Eye.

Deadline to register is April 28.

  • 5+ years of design experience
  • Designers from all disciplines (branding, graphic, UX/UI, product, and motion graphics)
