AIGA Portfolio 1 on 1

AIGA Portfolio 1-on-1 review sessions will take place Saturday, April 8th at Solera in downtown Minneapolis. Tours will be Friday, April 7th. I cannot describe how valuable this experience is to you career interests. Typically over 200 students from around the Midwest attend this event and those that do have a huge advantage over others that do not. You will meet tons of local designers and get some great advice. Plus because you will have practiced showing your books on the 4th you be much more prepared. Get your books ready and go!

Tonight is our tour of Initio. We will meet with Randy Pierce and talk shop at 7pm.
The address is 212 Third Ave N (the colonial warehouse building) Suite 510 Minneapolis, Minnesota 55401

I hope all is well with all of you. Thank you for showing in progress work last week.
My cell is 612 703 8572 if you get lost or something. I will hang outside til 7:00, but we should start promtly. We only have an hour. Try to get there between 6:45 and 7:00 pm.

My mapquest search did not give me the exact location for Initio. It gave me an address for 3rd Street. (this is wrong) be very aware that 3rd st and 3rd Ave N are of course not the same. Hint...Initio is close to the river, just before the railroad bridge.

See you all later...and bring some good questions for Randy.

The local part of the Graphic Noise show at MCAD is amazing. Well the whole show is crazy good, but I love seeing the Burlesque work up close. Wow! If you like design for ROCK then this show is a must see!
