AIGA and AMA Indianapolis Portfolio Review & Workshops

AIGA Indy and AMA Indy are teaming up to present the 2024 Portfolio Review for students, up-and-coming designers and marketers in the Indianapolis area! But this won't be just any portfolio review—we are also hosting a speaker panel and two workshops geared towards career preparedness. It will be valuable not only to students, but also for anyone early in their career.

This is an awesome opportunity for up-and-coming designers, marketers and those who have recently graduated to network in their field and receive considered and constructive feedback on their work.

During this event, students, emerging designers and marketers will be able to connect with professionals, gain valuable perspectives, and ask questions specific to their job search. Join us as we strengthen our local up-and-coming designers and marketers with a helpful portfolio review!

Who should sign up for the Portfolio Review sessions?

If you are a current student in design or marketing and/or recently graduated with a degree in these fields within the past year and want to ask questions about your portfolio, learn more about the field, and network. Then this event is for you! The portfolio review is open to AIGA Indy and AMA Indy student members and non-members.


Students/up-and-coming designers and marketers will set up their work (computer, portfolio, business cards, and/or physical projects, etc.) at provided tables and meet with professionals for three 30-minute feedback sessions.

  • In each session, you can explore specific projects, ask questions about your field, and strengthen your portfolio with helpful feedback. After the main sessions, there will be an open table discussion and dedicated networking time so that all students and emerging can meet with everyone.
  • A helpful guide and agenda will be provided for additional clarity through a virtual Q+A session before the event.
