Online portfolio service Behance is getting designers together to mingle and critique each other's portfolios. Find out more about this intriguing opportunity for honest and informed feedback...
So you've created your portfolio using an online portfolio service like Behance, and you've got loads of positive feedback, both on the site itself and via social media. Which is lovely - but at the end of the day, what you'd actually like is some constructive criticism. Because as warm and fuzzy as all those 'awesomes' and 'great works' are, they're not going to help you to actually improve your portfolio.
To square this circle, Behance is bringing together creatives in person, through a series of physical events held in big cities around the world called Behance Portfolio reviews, to critique each other's work in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
The events, which are organised by members, for members, are split into distinct sections. They begin with a short presentation by your host, then attendees break into small groups to have their work reviewed. After that there's time for mingling, networking and drinks.
To see how it all works in practice, check out this video summarising the latest Portfolio Review, held in Boston earlier this month.
You'll need to be a Behance member to attend - but sign up is free: see our article on getting started with Behance for details.
