Prepare your portfolio for a strong start in 2015 by joining AIGA AZ for our winter Behance Portfolio Review. Some of the Valley's most notable creative professionals will be onsite to look through your work and provide valuable feedback. Plus, you'll have a chance to socialize and exchange advice with other local creatives.

The evening’s agenda will consist of an introductory presentation at 6 by spotlight speaker AUSTIN BAKER, Creative Director and Founder of Brikk, followed by an hour-long breakout session in which individual reviewers will discuss portfolios one-on-one, and a chance to socialize amongst fellow creatives. We'll also be raffling off some design goodies, including a year-long membership to Creative Cloud.

*Wi-fi will be available.

Wednesday, November 5, 2014 / Tucson

Join fellow digital, print, and web designers in Downtown Tucson for our Behance Portfolio Review. Bring your portfolio (printed or digital - wifi will be available) or a project you would like feedback on. If you’d rather sit back and learn more about portfolios and presenting your work, that’s great too! There will be an introductory presentation, an hour-long portfolio session, as well as plenty of networking and socializing with fellow creatives. The portfolio review will be a break-out session of small groups with creative leaders to guide the session and offer advice on enhancing work.

Thanks to Behance, we'll be raffling a one-year Adobe Creative Cloud membership to one lucky attendee. Creative Cloud gives you access to all the Adobe Creative Suite apps like Photoshop, InDesign, and many more.

Stay tuned for details on our featured speaker, portfolio reviewers, and more!
