Senior Portfolio Review
Each fall, Senior graphic design majors prepare their portfolios of print or interactive work to present them for critique by professionals in the design field. These reviewers offer valuable feedback on the students' work and justification for design strategy. Many students make connections with and through their reviewers, and some have even received internships or jobs through this event. View the gallery below to see what Northwestern's portfolio review evening looks like.
“Northwestern has shown me how to relate to the world in a Christlike manner. The college helped me find a way to incorporate my faith and beliefs in everything I do: graphic design, art, relationships, etc. My design professor has been like a mentor to me. His passion for helping students express their creativity while praising God has been a source of inspiration."
