On March 2nd, we had the privilege of hosting a portfolio workshop, featuring a lecture by the talented viscom designer Kyle Larkin, along with Alpha Rho Chi. The event was geared toward freshmen preparing for their milestone portfolios as well as upperclassmen seeking employment opportunities this summer, or anyone wanting to expand their knowledge of graphic design in general. Various visual communication skills were covered such as appropriate fonts to use, pleasing composition sizes, as well as successful portfolio binding and printing techniques. Afterward, we held a question and answer session as well as an opportunity for mentors to meet with their mentees. Check out the photos below!
