I volunteered yesterday at a portfolio advising event hosted at St. Edwards University. I basically was an assistant advisor to Will Chau, someone I’ve looked up to in the Austin design/advertising community.
After a panel discussion, the students were split into small groups with a panelist, and we discussed big ideas and the type of work that should go into a portfolio. Will has a advertising background, so I tried to provide a more generalist point of view (which is basically my career so far).
I admired the students that were at this event. I definitely would have got to an event like this when I was in school. I also learned a few things myself.
