Calling all graphic designers - this one's for you! We're looking for 30 passionate, diverse and talented folk to join us at September's Portfolio Masterclass at Shoreditch House.

Whether you want to kickstart your career, show your ideas or step up to a fresh new position, this masterclass could be your stepping stone.
This event is proudly supported by our friends at Shutterstock & MOO.
ABOUT THIS EVENT
This event will allow you to meet and connect with industry leaders, discuss projects, ideas and network with like-minded folk. It's like speed dating, but with folios! This is a rare opportunity to chat to senior creatives directly, and a chance to get your foot in the door: industry mentors are often on the lookout for new minds to join their teams. Past masterclass attendees have gained internships, full-time positions and freelance work at companies such as Warner Music, Pentagram, Adidas, M&C Saatchi and Google.
