Senior Portfolio Walkthrough!

What is Senior Portfolio Walkthrough?

It is an evening reception to celebrate the accomplishments of our senior School of Design students as they display their work for all to see.

As you know, I am a current senior majoring in Graphic Design and will be graduating this Friday. So, I was told that it is “required” to attend this event, even though I really wanted to go since I went to the portfolio walkthrough for the past two years and I really enjoyed the event very much! Now, it is my turn! I just had my first and last senior portfolio walkthrough last night on May 14 from 5-7pm in University Gallery next to the Vignelli Center for Design Studies. I invited everyone including my supervisors, co-workers, classmates, friends, and many others. There were also a lot of other seniors from Graphic Design, Industrial Design and Interior Design majors showing their work. It was really nice!

I shared my table with two other deaf seniors from Graphic Design. We got a lot of nice compliments which gives me a lot of confidence in my future!


Here is my portfolio of work and self-promo pieces on the table!

And it is not over yet. I will post one or two more times this week before I graduate! 😀
