Portfolio Defense

Portfolio DefensesStudents 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 studentโ€™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.
