Portfolio Review to Kick Off NEDDC

Apr 17 2015 - 9:54am

Even before IDSA’s Northeast District Design Conference launches, attendees will benefit!

A Portfolio Review is set for 10:30-11:45am on April 24, 2015 in the Tower Lobby of the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, 621 Huntington Ave., Boston, MA 02115. Professionals will view student portfolios, work samples and resumes. Students can attend 10-minute sessions.

"It will be a great opportunity to present my work to some fresh eyes," says Gabrielle LaFalam, a junior at MassArt. "It will give me an understanding of how my work is perceived on a grander scope. It's a good way to get into the minds of industrial design professionals regarding what they look for when hiring."

"As a design professional and professor I understand the important role we play in shaping young designers," says Lars Fischer, himself a former IDSA Student Merit Award winner. "A Portfolio Review gives up-and-coming designers the chance to refine their work and polish their networking skills."

Brown bag snacks will be provided to students who talk to a professional. If you're interested in serving as a professional at the event, or need more information on the event, contact Professor Fischer at lfischer@massart.edu.

MassArt also is home to an IDSA Student Chapter, advised by Professor James Read.
