In-demand creative opportunities and professional skill sets develop continually-and so must your portfolio. Join this course to gain a new edge. Expand your abilities and develop an impressive, well-crafted showcase of your creativity that stands out to potential employers and prospective clients. Re-awaken your passion as a designer in the process, embracing new possibilities and working on projects that advance your creative potential. You may want to perfect existing work, start fresh, or add new projects to fill in gaps in your portfolio. This course will help you develop areas in your body of work that you feel less confident about, as well as focus on showing off your unique strengths, including how to incorporate your work from other disciplines (photography, fine art, illustration, etc.) into your design projects. Let's create a portfolio together that you're proud to show, and that will get you hired to do the work you love to do. This intensive critique/workshop setting includes one-on-one focus sessions, and a rich, shared online platform for support between meetings.

NOTE: Please prepare to share two or three samples of your work during the first session. This course is fully online and offered through synchronous sessions during the listed course hours.
