Advanced Portfolio Development (Spring 2014)
Design and Digital Media
Do you have a design project that you want to start, but don't know where to begin? Has your day job taken some of the passion out of your portfolio? Have you started a personal project but are having a hard time completing it without the benefit of regular feedback? Perhaps you just miss showing new work to a group of trusted fellow designers or colleagues?
Created specifically for graphic designers looking to refresh their portfolios, this class is based on an MFA mentorship model. The class was created to provide the structure necessary to make a real project and offer quality feedback to challenge and push students. Without concrete milestones and helpful feedback, projects can languish indefinitely.
Students in this class will propose one project, receive feedback on its viability and promise, and then meet weekly for group critiques and individual consultations with the instructor. Students who know they are in need of new work but are unsure where to begin will work with the instructor to assess needs and find a suitable project. This class is open to students interested in creating new design-driven projects in print, web, and motion.
