The positive response to The One Club Online Portfolio Review has been absolutely phenomenal, with nearly a thousand young creatives from around the world already registered to have their work critiqued. Couple this with several hundred creative professionals already volunteering to critique portfolios and offer advice, and the Online Portfolio Review is shaping up to be an incredible initiative in a time when the global pandemic has put so many young creatives’ aspirations on hold.
That said, there’s always room for more! If you’re a student or recent grad and haven’t yet uploaded your portfolio, or if you’re a creative professional looking to give back to the next generation of creatives throughout the month of May, you have until this Friday. May 1 to register.
The Online Portfolio Review is free of charge for all participants.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: MAY 1
FOR REVIEWERS & PROFESSIONALS
Break up the monotony of quarantine by paying it forward professionally! You’ll only be assigned as many portfolios as you’d like to take on, and you’ll have a few weeks to write a review of each person’s work. You’ll even have an opportunity to continue the conversation if you’d like to guide a young creative post-pandemic.
FOR STUDENTS & RECENT GRADS
You’ve worked hard to get this far — don’t let a little thing like a worldwide lockdown get in the way of gaining feedback from the very creative professionals you hope to impress when things get better. Once you’ve uploaded your portfolio, it will be assigned to multiple creative professionals, in order to give you a broad scope of opinions of your work.
The CUP Fellowship for Change in Design is a paid, year-long, full-time, training program designed to promote and support individuals in gaining the skills, contacts, and experience to help them excel in their design careers. The Fellowship is an initiative to support the development of a pipeline of talented individuals from historically under-represented communities into the design fields, and to dismantle the systemic biases that stand in the way of their advancement as leaders in these fields. The 2020 Fellow will be selected through a competitive, juried process and will work with CUP from July 2020–June 2021.
Applications should include:
– A cover letter addressing why you are interested in the Fellowship, what you hope to get out of it, and what your goals are for your career
– A current resume
– A portfolio of your design work. We are looking for your skills to work on a range of visuals and with type. Please describe the context that your projects were completed in and your role.
– A list of 3 references, with contact information
Please send all materials as a single PDF (max 5 MB) to email@example.com by Monday, April 13th at noon, EST. Include “CUP Fellowship for Change in Design” in the subject line.
