Under Review 2024 – AIGA NWA

Join us for our 9th Under Review, AIGA NWA's annual student portfolio review presented by University of Arkansas School of Art Studio + Design Center!

Undergraduate design students and emerging designers (people with less than 5 years of professional experience), don't miss this opportunity to have your portfolio reviewed by experienced creative professionals.

At Under Review 2024:

  • You will gain insight from three 25 minute one-on-one reviews
  • Sit in on an optional panel discussion with local leading professionals in the art and design industry
  • Opportunity to network with regional professionals and colleagues over hors d’oeuvres

We are pleased to have reviewers representing a variety of backgrounds and disciplines. Interested in helping out the next generation of designers? Sign up here to be a reviewer.

We'd like to give a special thanks to our presenting sponsor, University of Arkansas School of Art Studio + Design Center. As well as our table sponsors Creative. Please follow them, show some love, and check out their services.

And special thanks to Mara Camyn (IG @artomaraa) for this year’s beautiful identity design!
