About — Open Studio was born from of a personal desire to help new designers, by making portfolio feedback more accessible through 1-to-1 mentoring with a graphic designer working in the industry. It provides students and new graduates an independent resource for receiving portfolio guidance that might otherwise be difficult to find.


How Does It Work? — Open Studio uses 4 milestones to provide portfolio mentorship with timelines set by you. All portfolio reviews are made via video call.
