About our monthly Portfolio Masterclasses
Portfolio Masterclasses are a rare opportunity to chat to senior creatives directly about your projects and ideas. It's a little like speed dating, but in groups of creatives with portfolios!
Often, mentors are on the look out for new minds to join their teams - in the past, attendees have gained internships, full-time roles and freelance work for big names such as Pentagram, Adidas, M&C Saatchi, Warner Music & Google.
