Our 2015 AIGA Student Portfolio Review was a huge success with nearly 50 students showing their hard work and hungry for feedback. With 15 category winners and 3 top winners, the work shown excelled expectations and definitely did not make the judges’ job easy at all. Thank you to all of our category sponsors for your support and proof that hard work has reward!

“It is really rewarding seeing the continuing generosity of the San Diego design community who come out and support the graduating students not only with their time but with the donated scholarship prizes,” said Education Co-chair Cassie Hooper. “The student portfolios are always inspiring. This is an amazing event every year and we are happy we were able to support the tradition. Thank you to everyone who was a part of this year’s success!”
