Design Study Night: Building Your Portfolio


Welcome to our Design Study Nights! Throughout the year, we will cover various design topics in these events.

In January, our theme for the Design Study Night is: Building Your Portfolio. We will have one speaker describe the process of doing a portfolio redesign and what projects to include. Then, we will have two hiring managers speak about what they are looking for in your portfolios.

The Design Study Nights take place on the second Wednesday of every other month. They will alternate with our brand-new CSS Study Nights.
