Last week the Jefferson Industrial Design program kicked off its annual Spring Speaker Series. The evening featured professionals from four different firms discussing with students what they look for in an industrial design portfolio. The firms represented a wide range of specific areas within the industrial design discipline and included: Bresslergroup, DESIGNLYNX, Design Science and Stylex Seating.
From the minute students enter the Jefferson ID program, focus is squarely placed on empowering them to populate their portfolios with robust projects that demonstrate the value they bring as designers. The opportunity to hear directly from top professionals regarding specific approaches and considerations greatly aided students’ efforts in this area. Several of the speakers were also alumni of the Jefferson ID program and so were able to tailor their input in a uniquely specific way. It was a great evening of information and networking. We’re looking forward to next month’s event
