AIGA Salt Lake City’s Student Portfolio Review is always a great event for students to gain advice, insight and industry information from SLC professional designers as well as design and illustration faculty from Utah colleges.

SLCC Visual Art & Design Department Associate Professor Kerry Gonzales and Assistant Professor Virag White, both in the Graphic Design program, joined their advanced students at this year’s event.
