We will be joining several Chicago design studios in the annual AIGA Spring Portfolio Review at the School of the Art Institute on April 21. This is a great opportunity to see new work by young designers just entering the field and provide design feedback and career guidance. Having benefited from the input of many established designers when I was first starting out, this provides the opportunity to reciprocate.
It's not entirely altruistic. The last portfolio review we participated in led us to bringing on our first intern, Jordan Freeman, who has been an invaluable asset to Substance.
