Students completing the Digital Gaming & Interactive Media, as well as students completing
the Design Degree, participate in the quarterly Portfolio Defenses, an event that
culminates the end of the Portfolio / Job Search class, DSGN 190. At this free public
event, students showcase a few of their best portfolio pieces to a panel of industry
professionals. Past panelists have ranged from art directors and creative directors
from Bungie, Bullseye Creative, BDA and 5th Cell to seasoned freelance designers and
illustrators. Panelists lend an expert eye to student work and give constructive criticism
on each student’s presentation skills, quality of selected pieces, and suggestions
for improving his or her competitive edge. This event is widely anticipated by the
entire department as a learning experience for those presenting, as well as for audience
members preparing portfolios for employment.
Mon-Fri, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Mon-Thurs, 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
