A week-long series of virtual events held from July 19–22, The American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) Portfolio Festival focuses on helping students, recent graduates, emerging designers and professionals curate and position their portfolios at every stage of their careers. 50,000feet Principal and Executive Creative Director Ken Fox and Senior Advisor Ken Carbone will serve as reviewers.
During the festival, participants meet one-on-one with AIGA featured reviewers within their practice area, allowing senior leaders to provide feedback on their body of work and collaboratively tailor their portfolios. In addition to the live reviews, the event will also have keynote talks from four headliners. Attendees will gain exclusive access to AIGA’s networking platform to connect, learn and grow from fellow designers and portfolio reviewers.
