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.
01 — Kick-Off Share your current portfolio.
︎ 02 — First Review A 45 minute video call to run through your current portfolio and provide advice on ways to refine it.
☻ 03 — Refinement Time for you to further develop your portfolio at your own pace.
04 — Second Review A follow-up 45 minute video call to review your updated portfolio and advise further if needed.
Open Studio is a personal project set up to enhance the feedback loop between university and the creative industries. It provides a fresh pair of eyes for those who would like guideance from an unbiased, independant creative source.
