Get 1-on-1 Portfolio Reviews

You’ll get personal advice from the best in the biz on what you need in your portfolio to thrill future employers, and how to best highlight your strengths and passions, regardless of where you are in your career trajectory.

    Most of the time meetups are presentational and interactions with people are limited nor encouraged. This was quite the opposite, we were ushered into speaking with as many people as possible and share our work with each other. I ended up receiving way more advice and feedback than I would have just by sitting and seeing one person talk about what makes a good portfolio and comparing it to my own. Huge thanks to Matthew and Van for planning this event and facilitating the flow of conversations all night. This event was incredibly helpful and eye opening. I look forward to many more events, especially ones like this.

      Thanks for the great review Daphne! Your comments sum up what we were trying to avoid in this portfolio review and it's great to see that we've succeeded for the most part. Our next event is being announced this week-hope you can make it!

    Thank you so much for having such a great line up of professionals. I got great comments that will help me further develop a UI/UX portfolio.

    What a fantastic and useful event. It was extremely valuable to speak with experienced practitioners, as well as hang out with other designers in a small, quiet venue - which did indeed have wifi. It's rare that freelancers and those starting out in the industry have a chance to spend more intimate time with our peers to look at our designs; this was a chance to do that, and I look forward to attending more UX School events. It's very much needed in the design community, and I will wholeheartedly recommend it to others.

    Looks like a great meetup, I love the world of design and ui/ux, but I guess I'm not in :( , I consult start ups with their design and ui/ux, and working on my own company, Circlezon.com, I would like to collaborate with anyone who is open ....

    Regards,

    Hi Rachel, Van sent out a reminder yesterday that asked people to bring their portfolio in an offline format (e.g., on their local drive or printed out), as we can't guarantee an internet connection.

    Offline viewing access or no, I'm sure Meetup will be kind enough to have wifi in their office especially since they're an Internet company, no?

    There won't be any WIFI, correct? I'm having a bit of trouble (thought it'd be easy as pie) saving my site for offline viewing on the iPad. It's just HTML, CSS an a little JS - no Wordpress junk.

    Hi, i just wanted to see if it's possible to arrive late for this event. And if you will hold future events like this after say May 8th or so in case i can't make this one. Thanks.

    Hi everyone, we're keeping attendance *very limited* for this UX School event, so that we'll have an amazing faculty-to-student ratio.
