Your portfolio is key to moving your creative career forward: Join this course to develop an impressive, well-crafted showcase for your ideas and visual problem-solving skills to present to potential employers, prospective clients or graduate admission counselors. Or simply join us to re-awaken your passion as a designer by working on projects and processes that inspire, reveal and advance your creative potential. You may want to perfect existing work, start fresh or add new projects to fill in gaps in your portfolio and expand your skill set. This course will help you recognize and develop your strengths-including incorporating your work from other disciplines (photography, fine art, illustration or other applied crafts) into your design projects. It will also focus on strengthening and developing areas in your body of work you feel less confident about-be that because they involve a different medium (web, interactive or packaging design for example) or address a different area of design expertise (typography, three-dimensional applications, motion, etc.). In an intensive critique/workshop setting that includes 'bring-your-laptop' hands-on work and one-on-one focus sessions, we will be working on creating a portfolio that you're proud to show, and that will get you hired to do the work you love to do.

NOTE: Please bring your portfolio to the first session.
