AIGA - The Buzz

This month’s newsletter features information about AIGA’s portfolio hosting service, public speaking advice for students and upcoming portfolio review opportunities from local chapters:

Portfolio Reviews

Get a jump start on your portfolio

Two chapters kick off the portfolio review season this month. AIGA Arizona’s Behance Portfolio Review gives students and professionals alike the chance to get feedback from designers of all kinds. And on November 10, AIGA Austin invites juniors, seniors, MFA candidates and recent graduates to a Student Portfolio Review. Check AIGA.org for more reviews in 2013—and if your chapter does not sponsor a portfolio review, suggest it!

AIGA Member Gallery

Join the AIGA Member Gallery

Have you seen the portfolios displayed across AIGA.org? They highlight recent work from AIGA members, with several spots reserved just for students. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to join the AIGA Member Portfolios Gallery to make sure your work is represented! Learn how to get started or simply log in to link your existing Behance portfolio to the AIGA network.

Public speaking

Learn how to present effectively

If you need to present a paper or project at the end of the term, it might be time for a public speaking refresher. David Barringer has helpful advice for preparing your talk and wowing your audience. Learn more about how to rehearse, what to wear, when to arrive, what to do when you finish your talk and what to avoid in the days before your presentation.

Design for Good

You can Design for Good

Your creativity, empathy and design skills can make a difference in your community and in the lives of others. Whether working with a local community organization, donating your design skills or seeking out established nonprofit clients, AIGA encourages members to spend five percent of their time on social impact projects. Get inspired, then start your own project!
