ASID Pasadena Chapter to Host Online Student Portfolio Review on Friday, September 4th!

Please join the ASID Pasadena Chapter on Friday, September 4th for a student portfolio review!

During the review, there will be several interior designers, industry partners, and student peers on the same Zoom meeting for a diverse range of critique and Q&A. You will have the opportunity to:
• present your digital portfolio of design from studio projects
• speak about your work and design philosophy
• talk about any past experience in design
• discuss what your future goals are
• why you wish to be an interior designer

Select up to ten of your best and most creative works from your interior design courses, internships, and personal professional work, and organize them in a digital format (PDF or website). Work that you consider incomplete, not design-related, or does not show off your best craftsmanship should not be included in the portfolio. Resumes are welcome to be included as well. This is an opportunity to show off your talents and get your foot in the door for prospective internships and job openings.


To RSVP, please email STUDENTREP@CAPAS.ASID.ORG by Thursday, September 3rd. Be sure to include your name, name of interior design school, contact info, and expected graduation date. You will receive a Zoom meeting number just before the event.

Hope you see you at this amazing event!
