Students Rocked Our Portfolio Review (So Did Lead Graffiti)

Every year we host a student portfolio review that brings together local design professionals and students. This year, 35 reviewers saw 90 students come through our review. We also welcomed Ray Nichols and Jill Cypher from Lead Graffiti as our keynote speaker.

As professionals, we’ve all been in the shoes of these students—books carefully prepared, nerves on edge and business-dressed to the nines. We’re always humbled when students find our direction helpful, and it’s pretty common that we find our company’s next intern this way. We wish you all the best of luck in all of your professional endeavors and we encourage you to stay in touch!
