Lots of positive energy at our very first Portfolio Night
Since we care about future designers and love to share our knowledge and insights we’ve decided to organise Portfolio Night, an event aimed at giving students professional advice. The first edition was a lot of fun and positive energy!
At Oak & Morrow we’ve all been there… at the start of our career. A big world full of opportunities and the great unknown. But where to start? That’s why we decided to set up Portfolio Night, fixed a date and send out an announcement. We received a large number of portfolios and great interest in the event. We selected seven students from five different countries (Portugal, Germany, the Netherlands, Finland and China) and backgrounds (interaction design, industrial design and graphic design) to come over.
We really enjoyed seeing different portfolio presentations and giving insider tips. Just by putting pizza, craft beer and lots of candies on the table they already started smiling. Our designers Sophia, Valérie and Guus gave tips and insights and everybody appreciated our feedback.
Here are some reactions which put a smile on our face ;-) “Today I woke up with all your feedback still floating around my head.” – “[It] caught me a little by surprise and I hope that I will be able to return the favour one day.” – “The portfolio night was really nice [as well as] to meet you all!“
We will definitely be organizing this event again in the future! So let us know if you are interested.
