What is The Consult?
The Consult is a panel and mentoring event intended to give students the inside scoop on best practices for assembling a portfolio to compete in the creative market today. This event will feature a discussion panel of speakers who have made their way in their field. Communication arts speakers from fields such as Design, Illustration, Photography, Interactive Design and even Creative Recruiters will share their thoughts on what a great portfolio looks like and tips to start your own. This event is intended to inform your understanding of your specific discipline and expand your knowledge of the industry as a whole so that you can see how it fits together. This will encapsulate current trends, best online resources, portfolio content, and more.
After the panel discussion, there will be time for one-on-one conversations and advice as each professional leads a solo discussion as to how you can prepare yourself for their specific field.
There is a saying “you don’t know what you don’t know.” It’s time for you to get informed so that you can build the portfolio that ignites your career.
