Design your Career II. – How to Build Your Portfolio

The most important asset you have as a designer is your portfolio. It is the real deal. Your portfolio tells more about you and your design skills than any qualifications or certificates. That is why it is so important to build it and present it well online and face to face on interviews. Martin Perhiniak will share all his special techniques he used for his portfolio and on interviews, which helped him to work on design projects for Disney, Pixar, Cartoon Network, Mattel, Sony Pictures, Electronic Arts, etc. at the age of 26. This is the second session of a 3-part series about the three steps to find jobs in the creative industry.

Design your Career III. – A Day in a Designer’s Life

Once you start working as a designer you will have to cope with several difficulties every day. The biggest one is to be able to deliver creative ideas with tight deadlines. How can you be creative when there is a time pressure? How can you deliver great designs without having time to properly prepare for a project? What suits you better; being a full-time designer working in a team, or being a freelancer working on your own? What are the best practices in Photoshop that can save you a lot of time every day working with tight deadlines? These and many other similar questions will be answered on this seminar by Martin Perhiniak, who have been working as a full-time and freelance designer for many years and he will share some of his best kept Photoshop timesaver secrets for the first time. This is the last session of a 3-part series about the three steps to find jobs in the creative industry.
