“The Annual AIGA Student Portfolio Review is designed to serve undergraduate students from Utah State University, Weber State, University of Utah, Salt Lake Community College, Utah Valley University, Brigham Young University and Southern Utah University.” ~ AIGA SLC

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. Both said they were very proud of the nine VAD Graphic Design students who showed their portfolios and were reviewed by creative directors and faculty from other institutions.
