SPD-U Summer Student Portfolio Reviews: Wed, July 22

SPD-U Summer Student Portfolio Reviews: Wed, July 22 While our judges go through all the wonderful SPD-U Spotlight entries, we've got a great event in the works for all you students and recent grads in the NYC area.

Whether you're in the city for a summer internship, home from school and living in the tri-state area, or taking summer classes, we want to help with your job hunt and career prep by offering our SPD-U Summer Portfolio Reviews! Join us Wednesday, July 22 for this annual event where you'll get critiques from our publishing pros (names to be announced soon!).

There's no pressure on this one ... it's all about us giving you advice on what publication and media art directors are looking for and how you can improve your book to get those jobs! Doesn't matter if your portfolio is finished or still in the works, digital or print ... bring what you've got (details below) and our art director superstars will help you figure out what's working and what's not.

Details after the jump...

Get your ticket/reserve your spot here!
You must purchase your ticket or reserve your free member spot no later than midnight Monday, July 20, 2015. We will not be selling tickets at the door and if you're not on our list, you will be denied entry due to security issues.

Bring your portfolio whether it's finished or still in the works. Worried that you don't have enough editorial design work in your book to show? We don't care, bring it on!

• If your portfolio is in print form, it doesn't have to be a finished book for us to look at it ... we'll look at printouts or tearsheets, and help advise you on how to put the pages together if needed.

• If you have it on your tablet or laptop, it doesn't have to be in a finished website or tablet app ... as long as the images are pre-loaded and easy to scroll through, we'll look at whatever form you have them in. Just be sure the images are ready to go and separate from other stuff; each review is timed, so if you're wasting time finding your work, there's less time you have for real critique and advice. We also cannot guarantee wifi access, so if you don't have your own access, make sure your images are accessible offline as well.
