Under Review 2020

Are you an undergraduate design student or an emerging designer looking to overcome a COVID related job loss? Don’t miss this opportunity to have your portfolio reviewed by experienced creative professionals. We won’t be able to meet in person, but we didn’t want to miss the opportunity for you to get professional feedback on your work to help you get to your next step in your design career.

We are excited to have reviewers representing a variety of backgrounds and disciplines. Want to sign up to be a reviewer?


How it Works

Keeping everybody’s health, safety and flexibility in mind, we’re hosting this year’s Under View virtually, beginning Thur. Nov. 12, 2020 and concluding Sat. Nov. 14.

Step 1 – Register
Fill out the registration form

Step 2 – Match
We will match you with a local creative pro. Together, you will determine the best time to meet during the three-day window and which videoconferencing platform is best for both of you (e.g. Zoom, Slack App, Google Meet, Messenger Rooms, Facetime, any platform that allows the student to share their screen).

Step 3-Review
Log on for your virtual portfolio review at the agreed upon time. We recommend budgeting at least 20 minutes.



All participants (students, emerging designers and reviewers) must register by November 1, 2020 at 11:59PM. This allows time for matching and for the professionals to reach out about the details for your review.


Fine Print

Participants are encouraged to read and adhere to our code of conduct. Portfolio tips and information on what to expect and how to prepare will be included in each student’s confirmation email.
