This is simply a resource that we can offer you to work One-on-One, personally with a current, Industry Production Designer.

Join our instructor, Justin Martin, in a 30-minute Live conversation session as he explains the personalized feedback of your professional design portfolio and/or resume and how your personal branding and design aesthetic should help inform it. 

This session is most beneficial for those looking to gain some insight on their individual portfolio (or rebrand their existing portfolio) in a design-related field, as there are many other roles in the entertainment industry where a different style of portfolio would be more applicable.
