Portfolio Day 2014: Passion + Progress

UPDATE 4/28: Check out photos from this event on the AIGA SB Facebook page!

Cost is $20 to present your work, or $10 to be an observer. Price includes lunch.

Registrants, be prepared to show five to 10 pieces of your best work in graphic design, illustration, photography, multimedia or web design, or film and animation (please do not pick more than two categories). Let us know what categories of work you will be showing and what format you will be presenting—on a board, in a book, or on your laptop or tablet (videos can be shown on a large media projector).

Once registered, a member of AIGA Santa Barbara will contact you to coordinate your technology needs and answer any questions you may have about the event.

UPDATE 4/20/14: As of today we have reached registration capacity, so registration is now closed. If this changes at all between now and the day of the event, we will notify via this page.
