AIGA DC Creative Review is back April 10, 2021! Join us for insights into the creative industry and to have a one-on-one portfolio review session with a seasoned design professional 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 help get you ready for your next opportunity.

The day will kick off at 1:00 PM with a panel of local designer leaders who will share their experience navigating the design field, followed by a Q&A session where you can have your most burning career questions answered. Portfolio reviews will start at 2:00 PM. When you are not in a review session, hang out and get to know fellow creative professionals in our community. 

Deadline to register is April 2.

We are seeking seasoned design professionals who are willing to help review and give constructive feedback on design portfolios. Reviewees may also want to learn about your career journey and experience.

  • 5+ years of design experience
  • Designers from all disciplines (branding, graphic, UX/UI, product, and motion graphics)
  • Designers working in all kind of environments, including government, non-profit, in-house, design agencies, and freelancing
