Advice — Graduating this year? Get your portfolio reviewed by a range of top creatives

Posted 04 July 2019 Written by Lecture in Progress

You’ve done the hard bit: your projects are completed, uni is done and dusted, art school is fast becoming a distant memory... And now industry calls! But before you step out into the big wide creative world, how about some feedback? We’ve rounded up professionals from the likes of Google, Burberry, It’s Nice That, Spotify and more to pore over your portfolio, share their thoughts and offer some of their hard-won advice. Keep reading to find out how to get involved and claim a spot.

Together with G . F Smith, we are proud to present an evening of portfolio reviews at Show Space in London, where we’re inviting you to meet and share your work with industry creatives working across design, creative and art direction at brands like Spotify, Burberry and Google.

In groups of three, you will get the opportunity to have your work reviewed by four industry creatives. Whether you want to get advice on how to curate your website, find out what someone is looking for when commissioning, hear thoughts on exploring different disciplines or anything in between, this session is the perfect opportunity to make connections, meet other grads and get feedback as you think about where you’re headed next.

The session is open to those graduating from creative BA and MA courses this summer (suited to those specialised in design, advertising, illustration and photography).

Emma Hopkins
Creative lead, Spotify UK

Diogo Lopes
