Sign-up not required
Two dynamic veteran art and product design professionals come together to provide a deep, honest, and actionable critique of your design portfolio: including design communication, semiotics/meaning, user experience, task hierarchy, interaction and interface design, aesthetics, visual design, and design strategy.
Not only will you receive world-class professional insight into the quality of your portfolio and how to improve it, but you will also learn and practice essential hands-on skills to help you effectively solicit, give, and receive critique once you leave the classroom.
A complete design portfolio, including an About section, a minimum of three project case studies showing work samples, and a resume, is required for this workshop.
Students should come prepared to get up in front of the group and present one of their case studies for critique in approximately 10 minutes. Not only that one case study, but the entire portfolio, should be ready for critique, to the best of the student’s ability.
Portfolio must be accessible on the web.
Students should be prepared to share at least one and up to three specific key questions/concerns they have about their own work. Examples could be:
"I'm concerned that my portfolio is too research-centric to get a UX generalist job - am I communicating my breadth enough?"
"Is my visual communication strong enough? How could I make it stronger?"
"I'm wondering if I have effectively demonstrated my own contribution to my group projects while giving my co-collaborators credit for their work?"
