We're trying to build up and spread the word about our events, so if you had a positive experience please share your story below so we can reach more designers like yourself.
Some of these stories will be shared on our website and in social media posts when we announce new events. Help us spread the word about Toronto design and what we're doing so we can help more people!
I thought [Portfolio Review Night] was an amazing opportunity to put my work in front of the eyes of working professionals - especially those whose studio work I admired most. To be completely honest, I didn’t even have a full portfolio when I went! But I knew just having the judges look over my work would be incredibly beneficial.
To my surprise though, something I didn’t expect leaving with was new connections who I still talk to today. Unlike other design talks or events, PRN is for people who are in the exact same boat as you, so I didn’t find it hard to strike a conversation and make new friends.
At the end I think PRN is a great chance to hear how designers can help you improve your portfolio but also a fantastic way to embed yourself in the community (which might be just as essential as having your work reviewed).
