NINTH ANNUAL NATIONAL STUDENT SHOW AND CONFERENCE
submitted by: McKenzie Smith
Participants from SHSU traveled to Dallas for the 9th Annual Student Show and Conference and were able to network with professional designers, ask questions about their field, view competitions of other students from around the world, as well as tour various design studios in Dallas, which offered insight to the inside functions of design firms.
The workshops, panel discussions, and breakout sessions were extremely inspiring, and provided information on designing a portfolio, how to advertise with social media, and much more. The conference provided a portfolio review and job fair with the industry's leading professionals. Some students even had potential job and internship offers.
The speakers shared their experiences and expertise, along with new styles and techniques that are very valuable to a young designer student, and also allowed time for questions. All the participants received an awesome bag and T-shirt, free paper company books, industry news and promo materials, and many other paraphernalia. Back
