Behance Portfolio Review at VFS

Behance Poster

The Behance Network, an online portfolio platform, for the first time ever, are organizing Portfolio Review Events around the world. From May 14-21, as part of their mandate, they are supporting in-person critiques. And VFS Digital Design is hosting one of these events on Tuesday, May 15, 2012 in the Design Theatre at 420 Homer, Vancouver.

So, I got in touch with the moderator from Behance and with Digital Design’s Program Manager, Sholeh Atash, and I’m excited and grateful that everything got approved. It’s a great opportunity to meet with people from within the industry and network yourself. Plus, Behance will be giving away 3 months of free ProSite  (the customizable portfolio website on the Behance network) to anyone coming to the event!
